SERIES 29, EPISODE 8 - RETURN TO SENDER
The 'clumsy Lofty' theme continues, although to be fair 'accident prone' would be a better description for what happened to him at the start of tonight's episode... it gave rise to a couple of good comedy moments, but of greater interest to me was the more serious storyline that Lofty was involved in - that is where Lee's acting skills really come to the fore, the greatest skill being that you don't see the acting! There are a few screencaps for your enjoyment.
There's just time for one last mention of Lee's National Television Awards 'Newcomer' nomination - as I write, first round voting closes in less than 24 hours, at midnight on Sunday 26 October. Have you voted yet?!
Synopsis: Connie has a complaint made against her, while Dixie continues to rage about Jeff - causing ripples through the department and a confrontation with Ash, who still feels guilty about his colleague's death. Lofty treats a boy who is sick of being stopped and searched, and Zoe makes a welcome return - and brings an extra surprise with her.
The full episode will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Monday 24 November, but in the meantime, with my ever grateful thanks to the anonymous editor and my apologies to those of the cast who have hit the cutting room floor, here's the 'Meady bits' edit!
