Battle Royle.

IBEATCANCERKitchen sink dramas have a long history of playing up the comedy of everyday¬†existence but all too often it’s the drama that spills over into real life. That drama hits me especially hard when it means someone has lost a fight with the crab.

Hail and farewell Caroline Aherne, who had so many victories. And nice knowing ya, Mrs. Merton.

    While I’ve certainly heard of The Royle Family, I never watched. But the outpouring of love I’ve been seeing for Caroline Aherne today makes me believe she and it were something special, indeed. It will be sad to be introduced to her work posthumously, but I look forward to it.

      It’s a real shame that too often we become aware of someone and their work only after they’re gone. But there’s also a lot of stuff out there to watch so it’s easy to miss things.
