After last week's shagathon, Marnie (Charly Clive) renews her pursuit of healthy balance. An unflappable new therapist helps, but what's the difference between intrusive thoughts and genuine sexual attraction? A period of celibacy seems in order: "If you see me near anyone's genitals, smack them out my hands."

Ellen E. Jones, The Guardian, 20th February 2019
