As well as suffering from the heavy boak, I've also been very busy down at our Dumbarton studios. We started filming Series 8 this week so we've all been hectic getting ready for that. There's loads going on, we've got some great storylines coming up and there are some new faces around!
But let's get on to this week's episode. I bet Michael Brodie is wishing he was back in his care free days of being a Glasgow Tour Guide, life for the Brodie's has gotten very stressful this week! Naïve Nicole has run away from home in search of Stevie and has got mixed up with Stevie's shady mate Cammy Tennant (no relation). After Cammy stringing her along saying he was in touch with Stevie, Nicole was shocked to find out that Stevie was actually in jail. Christina tried to persuade Nicole to leave but Nicole is being a silly billy, she would rather hang out with Creepy Cammy in his mingin squat. Noooooooooooooooo Nicole you don't know what you're doing!! Cammy is planning on getting Nicole hooked on drugs and then 'selling her to the highest bidder'. It's pretty horrid stuff but unfortunately it does happen to people. Next week Michael holds a press conference to try and find her, let's hope it works and Nicole comes home safe and sound. They need to get Liam Neeson in there, he'd sort them out!
Miami Vice Murray was shaking things up this week, he breezed into Shieldinch with a brand new sports car and some cool shades, what a guy! Who knew he was in to fast cars and loose women?! Gina wasn't impressed by his new 'coolness' and she confirmed that they were well and truly OVER. I really did enjoy Murray's drunkenness, it was very amusing to see him getting all abusive (see Quote of the Week below)!! I hope Miami Vice Murray sticks around, he's very entertaining.
I don't blame Gina for being at the end of her tether, it's really difficult for the families of people suffering from dementia. I don't think I can say anything funny about this storyline yet, seeing Malcolm start to lose his memory is going to be very sad. However, I know from personal 'real life' experience that there can be some very funny moments when dealing with memory loss and it's not all sad times ahead. We'll see some really great Malcolm and Liz stories come out of this.
Happier times for the Mullen's this week, Scarlett finally came round about Stella and Bob's secret wedding and forgave them. Hoorah!! I don't like it when Bob and Scarlett fall out.
Oh and I almost forgot - who was that throwing a brick through the window of The Oyster?! Well, you'll find out next week! Also coming up next week, we have the continuing search for Nicole and Dan realising what he's let himself in for in going out with Kelly-Marie. Plus, keep an eye out for a special guest star...
Quote of the Week
Murray (about Gina): "Sorry, you're right, she's not a tart...she's a SLUT."
