The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

‘You’re borin’, up­tight, sour­faced, moody,’ said Kim to Denise this week. Per­son­ally, I’d pre­fer that to gobby, nag­ging and sport­ing a hairdo that looks like a mo­tor­way pile- up. No, I’ve never been con­vinced by Kim, and it looks as if Ray might be go­ing off her, too.

On Mon­day, he tells her that not only can he not spend time with her, he is off to play for Vivi­enne’s football team in­stead of train­ing with the Queen Vic team. How ex­cit­ing, eh! Else­where, there’s ex­cite­ment with the re­turn of Sharon, who ar­rives at Shirley and Phil’s en­gage­ment party, hav­ing run out of her wed­ding – she can pick her mo­ments. She is des­per­ate for Phil’s help to go back to pick up her son. Call me over-pro­tec­tive, but isn’t for­get­ting your son while you do a run­ner a tad, er, ir­re­spon­si­ble? Still, Phil does the de­cent thing and goes with her. The ex-fi­ance, John, is none other than Jesse Bird­sall, of El­do­rado and Foot­ballers’ Wives fame. Let’s hope that the punch Phil lands on him on Tues­day is not the end, he would be a great ad­di­tion to the show, not least be­cause he can re­ally play the vil­lain – as op­posed to pan­tomime vil­lain.

Now, here’s the funny bit. On Fri­day, back at the Vic, Sharon takes time to catch up with Tracey, an ex­change that should take all of 10 sec­onds – how is she go­ing to stretch ‘Served some­one. Walked to end of bar’ to a con­ver­sa­tion? It leaves Sharon with plenty of time to leap into bed with Jack, claim­ing that she doesn’t want to be alone on her wed­ding night. That old ch­est­nut.

The big news is the dis­cov­ery of ‘That’ photo frame, which leads Shirley to in­ves­ti­gate ’ho killed Evver. On Wed­nes­day, she sus­pects Phil, but will the truth emerge? Thurs­day and Fri­day sees three episodes in which the cop­pers try to find the truth.
