Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
It’s surely impossible to truly take against this gentle drama, even if it does err on the side of tweeness from time to time. Tonight, Eve Myles’s Frankie once again becomes a victim of her own good nature. She’s suspended pending an investigation into her part in the assisted suicide of Liana Corden. But she can’t help but answer a desperate cry for help from a patient and, in doing so, she gives more ammunition to her nemesis, the comically testy Dr Evans.
However, one suspects that in ‘Frankie’, redemption will never keep us waiting for too long; the hearing features an emotional plea from the bereaved Mr Corden and our girl’s halo is restored in no time. If we have a complaint, then it’s that Frankie is at times, almost maniacally, overbearingly nice. But as long as you’re not searching for light and shade, this is pretty likeable.
