As now seems well known, ongoing series and soaps take a while to pick up and reflect the pandemic. And they don't always do it very well. The Archers, for example, is now a rather sub-par talking heads show.
In which context, the last episode of Doctors, a usually rather bland BBC1 lunchtime soapy series was quite remarkable. I sometimes see a little of the show, before I turn over, as it comes on after the lunchtime news.
The last episode, on 11th June, was their only chance to reflect the pandemic. They did it through a whole series of video chats.
And it was quietly wonderful. There was tension, pathos and the whole thing worked. As a medical soap they could cover many aspects of the crisis. And it was well acted.
