THE OTHER WOMAN/ MO­RON

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SOAP WATCH -

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.
