  • Not as good as last week but still had its moments.

    8.4
    Having had a ridiculously busy week, I only watched episode six of this season yesterday and was blown away by how brilliant it was, which gave me the hope that the remaining two episodes would build on this. However, I was quite disappointed when less than 24 hours later I watched this episode and found that there seemed to be a distinct lack of progress.



    All in all it felt like the writers had sat down and said "we have all these ideas left over, let's just chuck 'em all in" and this lead to some nice singular moments, but a dreadful continuation of the story. Having said that, there was some development in particular a hilarious - although incredibly disturbing - end to the Holly/ Mac story arc and a brilliant revelation from Sue White (the excellent Michelle Gomez who stole the show) to throw another spanner in the machine of Caroline and Mac's relationship. This throw up some great possibilities for next week which I hope won't be wasted.



    Another wonderful moment was Guy's confession in the toilets. Stephen Magnan has done so well in turning Guy into a character that we hate, that it is a testament to his acting ability that he has actually made us care for the character, and his "I like you" speech must surely be one of the moments of the season.



    Unfortunately, after last week, I was left feeling quite let down by the Statham/ Joanna story; it all seemed a little predictable, and while Mark Heap having a panic attack is quite funny to begin with, after the seventh time you do want someone to slap him. Again though, there were still moments of brilliance within this; the coffee enema and the frankly disgusting kiss to name two and Statham's Good/ bad comparison to name a third. This week's Statham and Boyce joke was also very very funny- the "what have you been eating?" gag made me laugh out loud.



    So with one episode left there are still many things that need resolving. Hopefully, the story will be much stronger and will give last season's ending a run for its money. Only time will tell!moreless
  • Statham and Joanna awkwardly kiss, Guy eats umbilical cord, Statham was just gross in general... not a pleasant episode.

    5.0
    Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE this show but this episode was horrid. So many disgusting things happened in it i can't even repeat them they're so bad. I don't even wanna think about them anymore. Guy wasn't funny and he's my absolute favorite. I did like it however that it all got exposed that Holly's kid isn't really Mac's. And Sue's announcement of it "her baby isn't his but mine is!" with the whistle was quite amusing. Last week's episode was so good and this one was a big disappointment. A few friends don't watch it and i kept telling them how great it is - well, this was the first one they watched. They think i'm totally insane for finding it funny. It was just a bad episode!!!moreless

    • Alan: Hot, hot, sweaty hot. Hot flushes...
      Mac: Menopause?
      Alan: I need help.
      Mac: Oh, you want me to section you?
      Alan: No, tests, scans, investigative probing.
      Mac: Ok, simple test. Uuummm….put your left leg in, left leg out, in, out, hmmmm, shake it all about. Yeah, that's what it's all about.
      Alan: That's the hokey pokey!

    • Alan: Give me the kiss of life.
      Boyce: What? No! No! You only give someone mouth to mouth when they're not breathing doctor.
      Alan: Do as you're told, kiss me! If you share with me your life's breath I…I…I will die….
      Boyce: Oh God.
      They kiss

    • Boyce: My only worry is that, er, when I do become a fully-fledged doctor such as your good self I'll have to adopt an archaic use of words and a long-winded sentence structure. It is my intention to disengage from this conversation forewith.
      Alan: You're in great danger of confusing an extensive vocabulary with fuddy-dudderness!
      Boyce: Well don't you mean fuddy duddity?
      Alan: No! Fuddy dudderness.
      Boyce: Well your fudder-dudder-tudunal-latitude is only to be expected. You are at least 60 years older than me.
      Alan: Yes, well my seniority in years not withstanding -
      Boyce: Nobody says not withstanding!

    • Guy: Shave off your bodily hair.
      Caroline: Who wrote this!
      Guy: Me. To Mac Lucky you didn't get that because you don't have any bodily hair.
      Caroline: Neither do you.
      Guy: I have, I've got a lot of bodily hair.
      Mac: You've got enough for the three of us and half the Greek Olympic team.

    • Mac: I still love you Holly.
      Holly: Yes!! I knew you'd never get over me. This is so weird. This is exactly the way I planned it.
      Mac: Is it?
      Holly: So strange, I knew you couldn't be serious about that weirdo Todd.
      Mac: Yeah.
      Holly: Really?
      Mac: Yeah.
      Holly: Oh, kiss me Mac, kiss me.
      Mac: Stop you there, stop you there. This, Holly, is what is known as a honey trap. A Holly trap if you like. Not admissible in a court of law perhaps but it does confirm my suspicions…

    • Joanna: What are we going to do?
      Alan: Lets wee on each other.
      Joanna: No no no, really Alan!
      Alan: Lets have sex.
      Joanna: We have to keep away from each other.
      Alan: Lets, lets have sex separately.

    • Joanna: Christ Alan, you look like a northern junkie!

    • To young son, Robbie
      Harriet: I'll ask about watching an amputation but I doubt they'll let you cut anything.

    • Caroline: Swiss army knives are always landing on people's heads, aren't they?
      Jake: Yeah, I think it fell out of an aeroplane.
      Caroline : Really? Or maybe a magpie dropped it…

    • Statham: It's your lucky day Boyce.
      Boyce: Why, because I'm too tall to be a dwarf?

    • Joanna: Are you legal?
      Teenage Boy: What?
      Joanna: Are you legal or am I going to end up on some sort of a register?
      Teenage Boy: Oh right, yeah, I'm legal.
      Joanna: Oh good.
      Teenage Boy: Just.
      Joanna: What?
      Teenage Boy: Just. It was my birthday yesterday. That's why I was out after 10.

    • Sue: I'm having a baby and I just want to make sure it can fit through the door, parcel through the letterbox, bun out the oven…
