In fact, it was Matt having a dicky tummy that put the kaibosh on this episode. He was worried about “shitting himself” on the tube. Still, you’re hardly likely to complain when there’s a dead old lady involved, are you? Poor old lady, all dead like that. The last days, lying curled in bed, her gums no longer firm enough to support her dentures, an agonised skull with only enough connection to the world to be able to whimper “oh, I’ve had enough”. But even with that haunting memory sluicing around in me, I know what the real tragedy is here.
Matt isn’t willing to shit himself for the sake of a feature. Scum.
