Down in the dumps? TV won’t help


IN the Telegraph, TV reviewer Chris Bennion says that since we are all dependent like never before on our television sets, the TV industry is having to improvise rapidly.

He praises ITV’s new series Isolation Stories, four housebound 15-minute dramas.

In the first episode, Mel, a heavily pregnant Sheridan Smith in the title role is facing ‘the prospect of giving birth alone, because the father of her child – a married man with kids – has chosen to go into lockdown with his family. The writer, Gaby Chiappe, has apparently based this on a real-life tale from coronavirus Britain’. 

So, good to know that the ‘entertainment’ industry is still trying to lift our spirits.
