There are enough Aussies living in the UK that the bbc could surely have found actors so that we don't have to put up with these (not the worst by far but) pretty terrible fake accents. Or is it something a British audience wouldn't really notice?

at 10:18 atm, so now I'm thinking becca did it coz she wants to blow shit up but the kablam plan'll be nixed if sab gets the report to fran. I thought this was all a little cheesy to begin with, and elly's a bit hysterical-annoying, but as you can see from my incessant commenting, I'm kinda having fun now. still think the coroner and/or Mia might be working for big oil/government tho

the husband is a prick. why marry someone if you feel so much resentment towards them? and if you think your wife is a danger because she's having hallucinations, you try to get her admitted, not kick her out of home
