The Cry

Anyone watching this?
Next Sunday is the last one so it's a bit late to start discussing it but I thought yesterday's episode had some interesting twists.

I’ve only watched part 1, and can’t wait to catch up. I didn’t think I’d enjoy it as much as I did.

I've really enjoyed this, once the baby had quietened down. I spent the first episode with my stomach in the sort of knots I had when my second child was a baby - he was one of those who cried 20 hours a day, too!

It was certainly a brilliant cliff-hanger last night - totally unexpected. I suspect it's better not to have read the book already, if you want to enjoy the drama.

I have also only watched the first episode, and spent most of that also upset as I also had a baby with perpetual colic for the first 16 weeks and in hindsight I had post natal depression.

My marriage didn’t survive this period. Am interested in the next episodes .

Love most things with Jenna Coleman in. She is a very good actress.

Ah ... is it that one? That'll be why I didn't set it to record.

I've not watched 'stEnders since Kat's baby was kidnapped/swapped .......... couldn't bear it ...... I used to be able to watch the gut wrenching stuff, but not any more.

I almost started a thread about this after last night's episode.

I found the first episode hard work, but watched the second as it showed promise, and the third was so gripping that I spent the whole hour leaning forward, elbows on coffee table, clutching a cushion! Brilliant stuff! I just chatted with my dad about it and he was annoyed at the twist right at the end, but I thought it was very cleverly done and my brain was working overtime when I went to bed!

I thought it was brilliant, I was gripped right to the end. :tu:

Haven't been able to watch Black Earth Rising either ... the horrors of the Ruanda conflict are still too real and recent in my memory ... can't bear it :cry:

I enjoyed The Cry but deleted the whole of Black Earth Rising and The Handmaids' Tale unwatched.
