Good cast and everyone acts their parts well imo. :-)

I fully agree and really enjoy it.
When the blonde was in labour and screaming for the Doctor, my OH said " Huh she's a bit over the top isn't she"
I got a bit cross and said " Have you ever had contractions?"
No of course not he said.
Well shut up then.
Like they say.. If it was left up to men to have babies etc :-D :-D :-D :-D


'Emma' Report 21 Jan 2013 14:04

LOL have to agree with you there Barbs.

My OH says when I'm watching One Born Every Minute
and someones giving birth and screaming, 'She's not
helping herself.'
I say everyone handles it differently feel free to try it :-D :-

'Emma' Report 21 Jan 2013 14:27

Merlin LOL my body is now a temple ;-)

Two great grand children under 1year old is enough
to be going on with at my age :-D :-D :-D


Kense Report 21 Jan 2013 14:30

I see from another forum that, shock horror, they had a type of pram on the programme that didn't exist until much later. :-)

Sasha is an Ex. "Charlottes Harlet" (as she says they were called) she says its a load of Bunkum,it did,nt happen like that,the people were poor yes ,but not like they are portrayed on that show,they had some pride if not money.**M**.Ps. the East end was part of her area.


'Emma' Report 21 Jan 2013 14:37

Didn't see that KenSE, not that it would have
bothered me either, so enjoy the programme. :-)

Cooper Report 21 Jan 2013 15:22

I watched it :-D. TV is so dire that its all guns to the record button on a Sunday night :-D

Catching up with dancing on ice and also watched the first of the Father Brown stories which are on BBC on Monday afternoons. Next will be Blandings.

Housework tomorrow :-D



'Emma' Report 21 Jan 2013 15:30

Hi Teresa, Dancing on ice seems very bland to me this
time round apart from that unfortunate accident last night,
don't want anymore of that :-(

OH has remote clued to his hands pm and watches Sky
thats OK by me :-)

Watched Blandings .......nough said :-\

Whats housework :-D :-D :-D :-D

My parents lived in Plaistow Newham when I was born, but for some strange reason my mum went to Walthamstow to have me. I know they were young and not very well off, but I would hate to think they lived like that.
I know my mum watches it and will soon tell me if it is a bit far fetched


Cooper Report 21 Jan 2013 15:47

Hi Emma I haven't seen the accident yet!

We haven't got sky, I wouldn't get a look in although so not so bad since the eldest took to the seven seas working on a well known cruise liner :-D

I've seen a bit of driving on ice round here. Glad my car is on the drive :-D



BarbinSGlos Report 21 Jan 2013 15:54

I heard the story about the poor Captains daughter on the boat was true. If it was how awful for her.
Those sailors must have been the only ones that didn't need a girl in every port


'Emma' Report 21 Jan 2013 16:13

Won't tell you about it then :-( I felt so sorry for......

Barbs :-D :-D :-D not funny I know but the a girl
In every port did it for me.

I heard it was quite true to the book. :-)


AnninGlos Report 21 Jan 2013 17:04

Haven't watched it yet. But the girl in every port wasn't so funny if you were a Naval wife, in the 50s/60s it was quite common for the men to be away for anything up to 2 years - a lot of ports!!!


BarbinSGlos Report 21 Jan 2013 17:10

Sorry Ann, have heard the expression many times and wrongly made a joke of it as the young daughter of the Captain was kept on board to keep the men "happy"

No offence intended :-) :-)


AnninGlos Report 21 Jan 2013 17:23

No offence taken Barb. My OH was away for 6 months told me some of the exploits that his 'mates' got up to and some very funny stories. But did he or didn't he? He was only 26 when he went. I didn't ask. Probably not as he was quite shy then. :-)


Kay???? Report 21 Jan 2013 17:53

A purple pram !,,,,,,not in the late 1950s.

I wonder if they knew Quoy had a collection of vintage prams they would want to hire them..... :-D
