50 Girlcrushes of 2012: Anna Skellern
At the end of lip Service, I swear to myself that nothing would bring me back. The writers must have heard my threats because in series two they gave me Lexy Price - Sexy Lexy - who is everything this show was missing, a lovable fuck-up who was a bit of a dork, had a terrible track record with women but still managed to be a good friend to those around her. This character was so perfect I forgot that the show killed off the main reason I tuned into the show in the first place - R.I.P. Cat - and made me emotionally invested in a love triangle that seemingly materialized out of thin air (did anyone see Lexy-Sam-Tess coming in episode one). Now I await news of this show’s renewal because unlike the end of series one, series two ended in a place that begs the question “what happens now?” Although now that I care, I feel like the BBC gods will end up canceling it … if they haven’t already. The only question I have is .. Anna Skellern, where have you been all my life?
