The best soap opera in town...

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, and I don't want to be the one to wreck everyone's buzz. But you do know this is going to end soon, don't you? You know this can't go on forever?

In roughly two weeks, it's all going to be over, bar the shouting, and we'll be back to Home and Away and EastEnders for our soap opera needs. And worse again, on the news and in the papers we'll have to start paying attention to the real stuff, like mortgages and economics.

Not that we shouldn't enjoy all this while we can, while also trying to remember that these are real people and their lives we are dealing with. So as much as we were gripped by Dana's dramatic outpourings during the week, and the Martin and Miriam show, we should try and remember that six of these people are going to have to try and settle back into real life after this is over. So we need to be careful we don't do any long-term damage.
