  • I can watch back to back episodes for hours. The ones I remember and the ones I don't.

    Not for the stories or the jokes. Not even for the accents.
    It's the shopping bags, the street signs and the biscuit tins; the door handles, the ringing telephones and the crisp packets.
    Thrilled, soothed, and bizarrely panicked as I try to quench something entirely unquenchable.

    Striving to confirm a childhood: another lifetime, a million miles away.
