I must be weak, but two episodes of the BBC drama series "True Love" has shown me just how much I care for Margate, and I have to admit I don't care enough to lie, frankly without being heavily sedated, I can't make another episode.
Watching the first couple of episodes, even tasteful shots of characters traveling along Margate front and then back the other way didn't lift my spirits, nor Dr Who pretending to be a council officer, I understand that much of drama was improvised by the actors, which if you ask me just enhances the drabness of the stories.
Perhaps if the drama had spent more on writers it would have been better, as for the local commentary, that, this will help promote Margate, I for one, am not buying in to it. I like to be entertained or challenged, this, what I've seen, has been mundane and maudlin, which doesn't have to be bad as was the case with this classic of British cinema.
Hopfully if you clicked on the above, you had a clean hankie, Brief Encounter it is one of those great tragic love stories a bit like Cllr Mike Harrisons relationship between him and his electorate if you click here, it seems a touch of bitterness has come between him the voters as this comment from his "apology" for "inappropriate language" would indicate "I would also like to apologise on behalf of the two complainants for causing a waste of Council resources" where's the love. Cllr Harrison if you use offensive terms what do you expect.
