Is anyone else watching it? Looks interesting.

I’m going to download it later, to avoid the ads.

Darkly comical and intriguing. Enjoying it so far.
The first thing I said was that somebody was going to come a cropper on those stairs!!

The basic premise is good. Sudden death of a middle-aged man. Wife (or partner) discovering there was a lot she didn't know about him. Some poignant moments, however, it's too riddled with silly, unlikely incidents and cliched characters. Not sure if it's meant to be serious or funny.

I thought the same, is this supposed to be a dark comedy? Alice made some really stupid comments that I'm sure a grieving widow wouldn't say. Oh hang on, they weren't married were they? Will keep watching though. Really good line up Keeley Hawes, Joanne Lumley & Nigeria Havers.

Supposed to be Nigel

grannyrebel7 Sun 17-Jan-21 22:22:33

And Joanna! Annoying autocorrect again!

Blinko Sun 17-Jan-21 22:26:23

Keeley Hawes playing an annoying part again. I watched tonight in case I 'got' it. I didn't.

It looks like an interesting idea but who on earth lets a man build them a house without having any input at all? And if she's relying on phone banking for her own account surely she should be more au fait with it? Such a good cast I shall have to keep watching.

Does anyone else clean their teeth while on the loo? Very unhygienic.
DH says the toothbrush irtitates his bladder and doing both at once saves time...yuk!

Nigeria Hager’s sounds fun grannyrebel!

JanetG Sun 17-Jan-21 22:38:09

Oh no! Havers

Grannynannywanny Sun 17-Jan-21 22:40:09

Well it lured me in and I’m going to keep watching. I just need to resist the temptation now to binge watch it before next weekend.

GardenerGran Sun 17-Jan-21 22:45:43

Finding Alice? Finding it very annoying. Won’t be watching any more.

Gwyneth Sun 17-Jan-21 22:45:51

I enjoyed it. It is meant to be a dark comedy and I do like Keeley Hawes so look forward to watching again next week.

Didnt get it, turned off after mortuary staff was rude. Stairs would not have p
assed health and safety.. just annoyed me

merlotgran Sun 17-Jan-21 22:47:18

Very good. Great cast.

Pittcity Mon 18-Jan-21 08:41:07

Don't think I'll binge watch as there are too many ads on ITV hub and I'm not paying to remove them!

Kate54 Mon 18-Jan-21 08:52:07

Intriguing (just about) but we were annoyed when the hospital receptionist directed Keeley to the ‘morgue’. Think she meant the mortuary.Obviously designed for American audiences. Annoying!

Iam64 Mon 18-Jan-21 09:04:24

Great cast and very interesting plot line tonight.

Dorsetcupcake61 Mon 18-Jan-21 09:08:46

I've recorded so can avoid adverts. Must admit I'm wary of ITV dramas that are full of promise they dont fulfil!

I could just imagine myself in that house being totally useless with the technology. There were some funny moments and several threads waiting to be pulled together. I shall continue to watch, I prefer the three consecutive night programming to weekly slots as it takes me a while to catch up again.

Pittcity Mon 18-Jan-21 09:13:44

I think the mortuary man will feature.

Hoitytoity Mon 18-Jan-21 09:17:28

I couldn't hack it for long. The parents of the deceased are portrayed as doddery idiots which irritated me. Plus I'm sorry to say it I've had a bit too much of Keeley (not her husband though..)

Charleygirl5 Mon 18-Jan-21 09:24:33

I am not sure whether I will be watching all of the six episodes or not. I cannot stand Joanna Lumley which does not help. I agree, I also prefer watching three consecutive nights but 6 on the trot would be too much.

It is a tad strange if he has willed the house to his parents and left Keeley homeless.
