Honourable my arse
I didn’t think I’d stay the course, but there’s been a lot worse than The Honourable Woman on television recently. Given what’s happening in Gaza I doubt the BBC can believe their luck. The honourable woman (Maggie Gyllenhaal) looks too much like Cilla Black’s botoxed stepsister for my liking, and comes across as a very unsavoury type, as do most of the female characters. That girl who worked in Martin Clunes’ surgery and makes her living eating Maltesers is pretty good. She’s certainly nifty on her feet for someone so far gone. I’m looking forward to the final episode, although, given it’s the BBC, I guess we all suspect the Americans are behind it.
