Ham acting in Coronation Street and Emmerdale

    I have watched CS and Emm for a looooong time.
    I don't know about others but there are a few actors who are being paid for being ****.
    Dev and Peter Barlow overcook their roles to the point they are frazzled to a crisp.
    Conversely 'Will' in Emmerdale only has one expression on his face and only one tone of voice. It is like he has had an overdose of Botox injected into his whole persona. He is more wooden than Pinnochio.
    Or am I just too involved?

    Disappointed.
    'Ham' is the money box pig in Toy Story. For a moment I thought those soaps were worth a look....

    Can any actors in the current soaps actually smile? Oh hang on, that would involve some jolly, light, humorous storylines rather than the current crop of death, illness, injury, blackmail and violence. They don't actually get the opportunity to smile - that's it!. I'm sure they could if needs be.

    I gave up watching the soaps years ago because everything was getting so unremittingly grim. Coronation Street was probably the last one I gave up on but even they seem to have given up on everything but doom and gloom.

    Current favourite TV is Detectorists. Tried it out on Netflix and now have husband hooked too. Toby Jones, well all of them, are great. Loved the farmer in series 1.

    I loved The Detectorists, too. I am currently watching Witless on BBC I player which is a slightly darker comedy.
