Keeping Faith...... I watched the last episode and have to report that I am as confused as ever by the baffling twists and turns of the plot. Particularly the last scene where Evan reappears! It stinks to me of either a very badly plotted series or a blatant ploy allowing another series. A very famous writer who mentored me for many years told me that the biggest flaw in any story was to allow your readers to fall of the last page with no attempt at resolution leading to a credible and natural finale. In this respect, 'Keeping Faith' failed abysmally!

I have been watching "The War" a 14 part series on PBSAmerica. Covers WWII told for the viewpoint of men from four towns in America. Serving in the European and Pacific Theatres. Tom Hanks is one of the narrators who reads from some of their letters home. Interviews also with the some of the surviving men also. It's on at acouple of times each day and we are up to episode 9. Just breaking out from Normandy after D-Day and slogging it from island to island in the Pacific. It's very gripping as it's told from the viewpoint of individual men's experiences. A very good series, recommended and bound to be repeated I reckon.

The last episode of Bodyguard last night. Gripping and a nice conclusion. I've enjoyed it. They had a trail afterwards, there will be another series of 'Line of Duty' next year, written by the same author. Good, I really enjoyed that.

I think that Bodyguard will be back as well. It was gripping last night. Nolic

:good: I hope so Comrade. You still can't beat a good firm plot with added human interest, and yes, I mean the relationships!
