The first episode of Who Do You Think You Are certainly didn't disappoint us this week. It was the story of EastEnders actress Samantha Womack (nee Janus). We did wonder if her story might be as exciting as a soap opera, and it certainly didn't disappoint us. It started with her talking very emotionally about her father's suicide. She thought that learning more about his family might give her clues as to why he took his own life. That's often the way with family history isn't it? There will be some trigger that starts off your curiosity.
