I had a go at comedies last week so today I thought I’d turn the rantoscope to television drama. When I say the clue is in the title, I mean it’s called drama. Which kind of suggests to me that it should be, you know, dramatic. Everyone has drama in their lives at one time or another. Everyone has a tale to tell. But watching TV dramas you’d think only “the professions” lead a dramatic life. People in the forces (uniformed, detectives, Special Branch, army, MI5), medics, lawyers and teachers.
I’m sure this is why Hustle is so popular – a really fresh take on drama with something new to say. So where are all the shows about the fear and angst suffered by plumbers, architects, computer experts, lumberjacks, market gardeners and the like?Join TVScoop on Facebook for exclusive competitions and gossip
