THURS­DAY

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

HAS it re­ally been 10 weeks? Yup, and that means we’re fi­nally go­ing to find out what the hell this se­ries was all about.

It’s been a fun ride and a show that, de­spite one or two mo­ments of stretched cred­i­bil­ity, over­act­ing and a cou­ple of con­tro­ver­sial gay sex scenes, has been a real tri­umph for the BBC.

It’s proved that there is an au­di­ence for a grown-up sci-fi se­ries will­ing to take it­self se­ri­ously and not al­ways go for a cheap laugh.

Ad­mit­tedly, the pres­ence of Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper and Alexa Havins as Es­ther Drum­mond has helped.

All in all, a suc­cess. Here’s hop­ing TV ex­ecs re­alise there are op­tions other than hos­pi­tal and cop dra­mas and celebs learn­ing how to per­form heart surgery.

Hav­ing said that, Celebrity Heart Surgery has a cer­tain ring to it – Chan­nel 5 get in touch.
