This scene was the perfect showcase of James Hooton’s under-appreciated acting talents and was a stand-out moment of the week. As Sam struggled with his grief, the scene began in silence as he sat alone on the sofa where Lisa last sat. After a moment’s contemplation Sam was interrupted by Lydia who expressed her concern for his well-being. Sam could barely look at her or voice his struggles, but as he expressed his confusion over the situation and how he hadn’t been able to come to terms with things. Sam cried over not being able to say goodbye to Lisa, feeling as if he wasn’t permitted to grief in the same way as Belle, not being Lisa’s biological son. This was a poignant moment, particularly as Sam’s grief was almost naive and childlike and this was a welcome moment to witness what James is capable of.
