Has TV taken over from reality (on my screen anyway)?
Oh how I wish I could overcome my addiction to Holby City and its splendid group of actors.
Not only are the storylines gripping and (almost) believable, but the acting is always first-class. So much so that sometimes now even when it clashes with something really vital and newsworthy I find myself sneaking the odd few minutes peep, just to see what I'm missing.
Oh the nobility!
It's absolutely no use anyone telling me what a load of cobblers this all is. I know it. No use saying it is so far from real life it could be filmed on another planet, I know it. No use saying these are only actors - admittedly doing an excellent job. I know that too.
Someone please, burst my bubble, tell me to wake up and smell the coffee. But, not yet!
