Sad that Tilly Keeper is leaving which will mean April Rose Pengilly replacing as the hottest woman in any soap.

It looks pretty obvious that at some point probably Martin will tell Louise that Keanu is still alive and she will leave the show by going to live with him abroad and take her mother with her.

Gray is a character I like because he's not your every day woman beating husband like Trevor was to little Mo back in the day. Of course he's a bad man and you'd want him away from your loved ones in real life. In the show though it looks like they are trying to play him as flawed and someone who can be changed and is the way he is because of his past. This is shown from him not being all that bad as he's done lots of decent things for people such as looking out for Whitney and helping Keegan with his business.

Martin has bored me trying to be the hard man. It's not realistic for his soft family man character.

Honey having a eating disorder hasn't caught my attention. She looks the same she always has and wears the same clothes she always has. Wouldn't she have lost weight? Needed new smaller clothes? Have started wearing baggier clothes to hide the 'weight loss' from people?

Linda with her drinking problem is dull too. Pub landlady drinks too much, how cliche. The scriptwriters are obsessed with giving morbid stuff to the Carter family. I miss seeing more of the comedy they are very good at.

See I actually think Martin is quite believable as a tough guy, he had a strict domineering and often terrifying Mother, his Dad died while he was young, hes been dealt some hard times over the years plus his older brother Mark who had a criminal past died young. So all this considered you can understand why Martin would turn to violence as a release for all his built up anger and torment. The actor playing Martin has done a pretty convincing job with the new direction of the character too.

I dont have a problem with the idea behind Gray's character I just dont think the actor is doing a good job with it.

I agree a alcoholic pub landlady is overplayed and a dull storyline and the Carters are definitely best with more lighthearted comical stuff. Shame that Lee's return seems to just be a brief one off.

Didn't know Tilly Keeper was leaving, that's a shame but the storyline writes itself as she will discover Keanu is still alive and run away to be with him, she will probably break down to Karen who will confess about Keanu.
