Made In Chelsea was a disappointment after the fireworks of last week’s big fight between Ryan ‘The Ry-Man’ Libbey and his American rival Alik ‘The Fonz’ Alfus. Any viewers hoping for having a re-match (i.e. all of them) would have found the scenes they shared decidedly less dramatic/gratifying - mostly because there weren’t any.
With Game Of Thrones absent from our screens, fans of epic battle scenes, bloody brutality between enemies whose rivalry has been passed down for generations, and sex-maniacs prepared to satisfy their desires at any cost turned to… Sir David Attenborough and Blue Planet II. Even though we’d escaped The Deep into the shallows and ‘Green Seas’ of the title, this week’s episode featured several images/ incidents as strange and sinister as anything we’d seen in the Seven Kingdoms. Some of them were not that different either… ‘An army of spider crabs’ for example recalled the White Walkers’ Army of the Dead – ‘hundreds of thousands of them !’, Attenborough gasped, sweeping relentlessly across the seabed in Australia like bony, thorny, zombies re-animating and continuing, leaving a mass of ‘corpses’ behind them.
