The Heart Guy (Doctor Doctor) s2


I LOVE The Heart Guy (Doctor Doctor in its native Australia), and I have now watched every episode of both seasons, although if you’re on UK broadcast schedule there are still a few to go.

So if anyone wants a spoilery discussion of the first two seasons I am HERE FOR YOU, including but by no means limited to questions such as:

· Are Hayley and Ajax too young to be getting married? Yes, although the proposal was sweet, as was the wedding: in particular their dance routine to ‘Green Light’

· Does Charlie’s novel sound any good? Nope.

· Ken and Mia (#Kia, I suppose) or Ken and Betty (#Ketty)? I don’t quite see why Ken and anyone, but he clearly has something.

· Would we want Hugh’s amoral mother as the Mayor of our town? You know what? I think we might. The trains would run on time, even if she were skimming something from the ticket prices.

· Did we like Hugh’s wife? No we did NOT. #stupidestrangedwife

· Were we SCREAMING at the TV when Hugh was about to come round from the anaesthetic, and Penny stepped away for a moment, and his #stupidestrangedwife totally slipped into the room JUST as he was waking up? We all know the answer to that.

· The biggie: are we shipping Hugh and Penny? YES. YES we are. We are shipping them HARD.

· Despite that – and here’s a controversial one – is it possible that, even though it’s not going to happen, Hugh and Charlie are MFEO? I think we need to give that consideration.

· Do we want to see the season 3 trailer? Oh, I think so:

· And was that… KISSING?! Looked like it to me.

· Should CJ be watching this? Yes she should. Please tell her.

    You should watch this, CJ! It’s great fun! And them Aussies have a nice bit of eye candy going around too, if that helps.

    Amen to the whole post, Jed! Definitely #Kia over #Ketty. Surprised to finally see Hayley’s parents, as I don’t think they really came up in s1. Hayley just hung around a lot. Hugh’s ex wife I’m happy to be rid of.

      SO. MUCH. (I’m a bit worried that one of the kisses looks like a dream sequence, but they can’t ALL be, surely?)

      Following on my theory that Hugh and Charlie are, for each of them, The One Who Got Away, it’ll be interesting to see how Charlie reacts if Hugh and Penny becomes a thing. As I’ve said before, the way in which Hugh has quite happily created havoc in his brother’s marriage verges on cruelty, although it’s one of the plots which has prevented the show from becoming too saccharine.

        Yeah, I got dream sequence vibes too, but hopefully not ALL of them – SURELY?

        I found the brother’s reaction a bit weird, or rather that Charlie didn’t come clean about the kiss. I mean, the whole reason she kissed Hugh was to see if there was anything there, and she said there was nothing there any more. If that’s how she feels, she could quite easily just admit that she felt nothing, and maybe that could stop her hubby’s doubt once and for all? But did she say any of that? Nope. Arghh.

          And then the whole kissing-to-see-if-I-feel-anything happened again with Betty and Ken. Must be a Whyhope thing.

          The feeling I get is that Charlie truly loves Matt. But he’s the one you marry, not the one you have amazing sex on the Barcelona train (have I remembered that correctly?) with. Which is fine if Mr Amazing Sex is hundreds of miles away; not so much if he’s round the corner and frank about his interest in you.

    Heh the unpopcult branch of the ❤Guy fan club is in excellent health 😃 Is Charlie Hugh’s ex/ brother’s wife? I didn’t think they were MFEO in the couple of eps I watched – I thought she was very much still in love with him but it was because she was stuck in their past, and she would always want a kind of commitment he couldn’t give her. But I did only watch two eps….

      Yes – Charlie’s his sister-in-law.
