THE OTHER WOMAN/ MORON
Maria’s repetition of the phrase ‘I must be shtoopid’ must inevitably be in rehearsal for a comeback following her decision to be mistress to Aidan (inset). ‘It’s better than nothing,’ she cooed, before asking: ‘Do we have a deal?’
What are you thinking, woman? Any man would accept that kind of deal – and don’t forget, he’ll be getting free haircuts too. How realistic is Maria being when, out of guilt, she tries to make Eva (pictured, left, with Maria) hate her by impersonating her in front of the factory girls (Samia Longchambon did the most brilliant impression of Eva’s laugh).
Is anyone buying this Gina storyline, or is Leah behind it all and making Gina just think she’s bipolar? I’m also not buying Michelle’s alleged love for Robert – not least because he claims to be a chef and didn’t touch one utensil the entire week (mind you: nothing new there). Star of the week is Kate Ford (Tracy). How does any actor manage to say a line like this and keep a straight face: ‘I’m laying the groundwork for when we get in that container.’ It’s a long story, folks. You had to see it, really.
Yeti of the week: Audrey. The way her fringe is growing, she’ll need a topiarist to help her find her way out of it by Christmas.
