Good Screams

I was intrigued to see whether Call The Midwife's Jessica Raine, who plays butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth midwife Jenny Lee, could produce some good screams for Doctor Who, episode 4, Hide. She did indeed. Wearing a silly metal hat worthy of Ascot Ladies Day, she outscreamed the best of them. She also managed her more subtle acting, which is a good trick when Matt Smith is doing his hammy thing as Doctor Who. She played gifted psychic Emma Grayling in a ghost-hunting episode reminiscent of Abbott and Costello at their worst (CLICK). The plots get sillier and sillier. Matt Smith gets sillier and sillier. His sonic screwdriver gets sillier and sillier. But his crumpet is pretty (CLICK).
