Looking like a fabulous episode

At last! Someone (Billy) is reprimanded for storming into someone's workplace for personal reasons. Much as I like Billy, the way he treated Sean was appalling and un-Christian. I also thought Sean played the scene rather well, quietly explaining why he wouldn't have done it, without his usual hysterics. Besides, it wasn't the person who "dobbed him in" who may cost him his job, but Billy himself for allowing Todd to stay when he knows it's against the rules.

I'm torn with this episode for a few reasons.

The Kirk/ Beth story has come as a surprise, so the lack of spoilers has been very nice and a bit of a 'gasp, shock' for once in a long time. However I do feel, why couldn't they leave just one happy couple on the street. Her shouting 'my Kirky' won't have the same ring to it now, which is such a shame - unless of course there is a further twist.... I'm hoping the new producer will be less forthcoming to the press as we've known far too much in recent years which has taken out much too much of the surprise element imo.

Secondly. Billy. What are they doing to him. Being a vicar isn't a calling for Billy. It's a job now. I've said before the storyliners aren't sure where they are with this and are just making it up as they are going along other than plotted it out months ago. You can tell as they morph Billy into somebody else for headlines. Billy would never have gone into a work place and shouted and ranted, nor treated people so badly. He was decent and kind. In real life he would have probably started drinking in another pub to spare Sean's feelings. We don't see him doing much church work either, only concentrating on the homosexual, pub drinking, vicar. He was brilliant with Sarah. Let us see him at work more, for us to understand his dilemma. He's dithering and should either stand up to the congregation with examples of scripture and acceptance, or resign. As much as I find Sean irritating, these last few weeks Sean has been the bigger person! So Billy is the most un Vicer like person I've ever come across for not standing up to anything he believes. A Gay vicar giving a sermon on tv for acceptance is far more powerful than charging into a workplace, or dithering. There's so much more to go with this story than how they are.

Have to say, I loved the references to The Walking Dead by Andy and Steph; Andy's make up was brilliant!
