Press

The Other One, Holly Walsh's gleeful twin-family saga ended (if you've been watching in real time) on a real high. It had many terrific lines, mainly - as usual - from Ellie White as Cathy, whom you suspect the writer most identifies with. One clue: she gives her the sharpest lines. After she has been given a particularly gaudy tiara-and-mascara makeover by Cat (Lauren Socha), dowdy safe Cathy declares to the mirror: "Oh My God! I love it... I look like I could have my own show! On ITV3!" Marilyn (Siobhan Finneran) finally makes it out of the house, Rebecca Front's Tess finally forgives cheating Colin (Simon Greenall) and, after a cheeky red herring, the stage is well set for a second series. There have been harder recommissions to predict.
