Quotes

Chris Miles: I don't know what I'm meant to say. I was perfectly happy killing myself, but then you asked me to try. And for the first time in my life it felt like someone actually gave a shit, and that that person was worth trying for. And... and now... I'd make the world record biggest sandwich if you asked me to. I'd kick old grannies in the tits. I'd fill the rivers with Panda Pops. I fucked up big time. I'm more than sorry. I love you Jal. You're my whole world.

Beautifully played

This is a beautiful episode in many ways, the foremost being the scene between Chris and Cassie after they get kicked out of the flat. It's unusual that they're alone on the screen together, and catching both at their lowest ebb (and subsequently seeing their different reactions to a desperate situation) is all the more touching and emotional for it.

I thought they could have ended on that scene, though they chose a happier route, with the scenes with Jal after redemption for Angie and the brilliant scene with Chris and Tony alone at the swimming baths, a scene which encapsulates the friendship and lovingness of the group despite the many things that get in between them all.

The acting is superb throughout, but Joe Dempsie deserves a special mention; he carries this episode with a wonderful young performance, showing Chris' playfulness, unique energy, humour and also the inner pain that is behind his extrovert facade. A top performance.
