the popular Medici series on Netflix. Normal People has already become ‘a small screen triumph’ and the Guardian review said it was: ‘a triumph in every way, from acting and direction to script, and if we see a better drama – certainly about adolescence, one which takes it seriously without treating it indulgently – this year, I’d be very surprised. It’s a beautiful, hugely beautiful thing.’ SUTCLIFFE, CECI (D, 2015-2017) During lockdown, Ceci and her friend Izzy started to raise money for the NHS.

Dominic and his wife (and fellow vet) retired this spring, two weeks before lockdown. Having avoided the difficulties of running a small business in the face of the Covid-19 outbreak, they have yet to start out on their plans for retirement – travel, sailing, riding the horses etc. - but are looking forward to better times.
