What did you think of the new RTÉ drama Charlie?
'I think it's a very good series. The first episode was very lively. Charlie was exceptionally well portrayed by Aidan Gillen but I think it might get a few comments.'
'I thought it was really good. The acting by Aidan Gillen was brilliant. He really studied Charlie's mannerisms. I will definitely keep watching.'
'I've watched it. I met Charlie Haughey three times. To what degree he was involved in skulduggery is everyone's own opinion. The actor playing Sean Doherty got his physical resemblance very good.'
'I loved the first episode because it was very close to the truth. The acting was excellent and I'll keep watching.'
'I thought it set the standard high for RTÉ but sometimes you couldn't follow who the characters were. The Vivaldi music at the party was tacky but Gillen got Charlie's body language down.'
'It was very good and well acted. I don't know if much of it is true or not. It might be a bit far fetched in places but I'll keep watching.'
'It was 70 per cent accurate. Aidan Gillen resembles Charlie but he was a bit older and mature looking. He doesn't do the stare, the way Charlie would look the person down. I'll keep watching.'
'It was pretty good. Aidan Gillen's acting was good too. Charlie comes across slightly dictatorial.'
'I didn't watch it because it's too ficticious and there are a lot of actors from Love/Hate. Gillen doesn't even look like Charlie. It's the same old story, asking us to tighten our belts. Last thing I would watch.'
'It was very realistic. It gives a great insight. Very dramatic and wonderful acting. I'll keep watching.'

'It was good fun. I don't take these things too serious. It probably doesn't tell the true story because of drama but it's something to watch on a Sunday. It's not as good as Love/Hate though.'
'I didn't watch it. I've no interest really because it's a fictional account. The facts about what happened are still too fresh in people's minds.'
