I think I'll be washing my hair catching up on Season 3 of Harlots on SBSOnline instead. :p Enjoy, everyone who's interested!


Let the skating begin
The sound is out of sync. Tanith was talking with her mouth closed and nodding at what Charlie was saying. :lol:

I like Charlie White in this format. I get more of a sense of who he is, but not in an intentional way. He’s very awkward, and the polite laughter is weirdly endearing. He’s seems very self-aware, so he keeps giving us moments where he’s in his head for a second.

Such a contrast with Tanith who is just completely natural and comfortable in her own skin.
