The last show you loved
I’m really late to the party, but Game of Thrones got me through lockdown. It’s almost as though I knew subconsciously that there was going to be a pandemic, because I started it on the first day of lockdown and I managed to space it out enough that I only finished it last week. I loved it so much – I savoured every moment.
I spent many nights screaming and shouting at the TV – my husband basically didn’t see me in lockdown, because I was so enthralled by it. I also thought the finale was great – it was exactly how I wanted it to end. It was a win-win.
Your TV guilty pleasure
I don’t feel guilty about it, but I do continue to go back to Grey’s Anatomy. When it first came out, I watched a few episodes here and there, but I didn’t follow it. About two years ago, I decided to watch it from the beginning and I got all the way through to season 13. A friend pointed out that meant I spent three whole weeks that year just watching the show. I’ve seen so much of it that I’m pretty sure I could save lives as a cardiothoracic surgeon.
The last show that made you cry
The final episode of Normal People made me cry, because you spend the whole series wondering if they’ll get it together and finally when they do he says he’s going to New York and she wants to stay – I was just screaming: ‘Don’t stay! Go with him!’ It was like they were in my living room. I haven’t seen a show that touched on love in that way in a really long time. It completely did the book justice.
The show on which you want to guest star
I would love to guest star on Friends. Friends is my happy place and my safe place. During lockdown, I really fell down that Friends bloopers rabbit hole – I’ve never laughed so much.
Your favourite show when you were 10
I was a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air girl. I still know that opening rap off by heart. I have perfected the Carlton dance and that will for ever bring me joy. When it’s on now, it takes me back to watching it after school and I remember Will Smith just being such a genius in that show. He makes comedy look so easy, which it really isn’t.
The show you wish had never ended …
I wish Sex in the City never ended. We all still have so much to learn from it! The show was a bit naughtier and more honest than the movies. I remember watching it as a teenager and I fell in love with the sisterhood and New York – just talking about it gives me butterflies. I’d love to see them now at this stage in their life, navigating this era.
… and the show that should be cancelled
I have to say CSI: Miami. I can’t watch Horatio solve another mystery. For a while, it was my go-to show, but I can’t believe that it’s still going – I’m so over it. Sorry, CSI, you’ve solved too many murders and you should just put your feet up and have a cuppa.
