The standard of this week’s scripting has been heinously inept, and most of what is written for Lynda is offensive nonsense anyway. But there was one nugget of shite in her ravings last night that deserves particular notice: her belief that the Mysteries production would be a post-pandemic morale-booster.
“It will all be over by
Christmas Boxing Day!” Aye, in a pig’s eye it will.
Granted, writing Covid was always going to be tricky for TA, which presumably is why they have largely sidestepped the issue. However, only a fool could have written that line (take a well-deserved bow, Ms Hehir) and only an incompetent allowed it to make it through to broadcast (your turn, Mr Howe. Come along now, don’t be shy!).
Oh, and it won’t be a morale-booster either: quite the reverse.
