No voice-over here.Everything normal. Poor Susan!

lemsip Mon 25-Sep-23 21:55:23


Is it just my TV or is there a voice-over describing everything that’s happening? It’s quite annoying…

it's a button on your remote. done it myself inadvertently sometimes

So nobody phones the fire brigade?

Greenfinch Mon 25-Sep-23 22:07:54

And no-one would stand so close to a burning building.

My thoughts exactly Greenfinch.
A weak ending I felt.

Charleygirl5 Mon 25-Sep-23 22:24:53

merlotgran that is what I could not understand. After Nathan was knocked out surely 999 could have been contacted then. I did not understand why everybody just stared at the burning building- a poor ending in my opinion.

maddyone Mon 25-Sep-23 23:58:41

I was disappointed with the ending too.

The "voice over" is for people with impaired vision and occasionally I hit it on the remote.

Clawdy Tue 26-Sep-23 08:38:33

Too many things not explained. Why on earth did Susan and Michael have their son adopted? And why did James think he'd inherit by killing his mother?
Didn't like Sian telling Alex "This changes nothing " when he had just saved three lives, including hers!

Parsley3 Tue 26-Sep-23 08:45:06

It was a daft and disappointing ending.

HowVeryDareYou2 Tue 26-Sep-23 08:48:07

I thought this was going to be good, as it had a few well-known people in it. The ending was really silly.

Millie22 Tue 26-Sep-23 08:56:53

It was ridiculous and silly ending. I couldn't concentrate properly as the woman with the puffy lips was hard to understand.

Glen at least deserved a thank you. He rescued them. Bonkers.

Primrose53 Tue 26-Sep-23 09:10:02

Afraid I fell asleep halfway through and woke up as Glen was rescuing them. Then his ex said “this won’t change anything between us.”

What’s this about the adopted son?

Can anybody fill in the blanks please.

I was still bothered by the woman with fake lips too.

eddiecat78 Tue 26-Sep-23 09:15:34

Very very silly.
Was it my hearing or was there a lot of mumbling? I missed a lot of what Nathan and Glen said

Abitbarmy Tue 26-Sep-23 10:18:59

There was so much I didn’t understand, it didn’t make sense. What absolute tosh. Still don’t know who was going to inherit what was left. It was one of those that you stick with to the end hoping it’ll get better and all will be explained. It didn’t and wasn’t!

Sparklefizz Tue 26-Sep-23 10:58:07

I missed everything that Glen said and tried to turn on sub titles but couldn't get them on.

Ridiculous storyline, rubbish ending, Gaynor Faye can't act and smiles showing all her teeth at the wrong times which is weird.

That's 4 hours I won't get back!

merlotgran Tue 26-Sep-23 15:22:50

The ending was too rushed. One minute the coroner is calling a halt on the whole thing and then, as if by magic, the detective has solved the whole thing when we didn’t even know what the whole thing was.

It made me remember that whenever I got fed up or frustrated with something DH would laugh and say, ‘Just set fire to it!’ 🤣🤣

Liz46 Tue 26-Sep-23 15:26:52

I was disappointed too after concentrating so hard to try and follow it.

FlexibleFriend Tue 26-Sep-23 16:31:03

Complete and utter Tosh, why do we bother to watch this shite?

Bea65 Tue 26-Sep-23 18:41:38

Was going to watch final tonight...don't thinkI'll bother!!

Auntieflo Wed 27-Sep-23 09:11:26

Glad I'm not the only one who thought it rubbish.
Come on Ch5, you can do better.

MrsThatcher Wed 27-Sep-23 13:57:21

The worst drama I’ve ever seen. What a waste of time. Acting diabolical, story silly and unbelievable. Total shite!

pascal30 Wed 27-Sep-23 17:00:44

I'd give it a miss.. it was completely ridiculous

MerylStreep Wed 27-Sep-23 17:06:14


Complete and utter Tosh, why do we bother to watch this shite?

You don’t. I’m assuming you have at least one streaming app?
Prime, Netflix. There’s a humongous amount of brilliant stuff to watch.
