Too late for me too, we have recorded it to watch again. It is a very gentle comedy, nothing earth shattering but it leaves you feeling refreshed!

I liked the Detectorists but would hate suicide headaches.... As I keep saying I am a lucky man!
Started watching the Rochdale teenagers but had to ditch it, too appalling for me!

I forced myself to watch the first episode of Three Girls and followed with the second instalment last night. A harrowing watch but necessary I think. I was working in Rochdale during the earlier abuse cases in the 1980s and got a glimpse of what was going on then. It's a story of our time but no less acceptable for that. Those poor girls.....

Comrade, it is harrowing but I think a reasonable portrayal of what youngsters go through in these situation. Rochdale police and social services should hang their heads for the way in which the treated these young girls. I know the woman who went in to try to sort the mess of children's services out after the trials. She barely lasted 3 months and the job was too much for her. Nolic

I agree Comrade. I was close to some of the participants in the abuse storm in Rochdale in the late 80s and caught a glimpse of the fall out 20 years earlier. I watched the last episode last night and it was good. I note that the Council gave Sarah the bullet afterwards.... The bastards! Worth remembering that at the same time they were all turning a blind eye to Cyril and other known abuse.

Sarah was on North West Tonight at 22:30 last night and obviously still under stress from her experiences.

The interview with President May by Andrew Neill wasn't 'good' but very enlightening. She was like a speak your weight machine.....

I was struck last night by the fact that Manchester obliterated everything else even the new drama on BBC1. Totally different attitude in WW2. Then it was report the news but keep calm and carry on. There is such a thing as the 'oxygen of publicity'.
