I also watched it but I have to say that I was not comfortable watching some one else's suffering. That said know I have seen the first episode I am compelled to watch the rest of the series. A bit like watching a Lassy come Home film I always have to watch to the end.
Would I have tuned in prior to Trevor's dx, yes I would but then I also watch One Born Every minute on the other hand Trevor wouldn't watch either of these programmes either before dx and especially not know.
So perhaps I just have a fascination for life's real moments IE the entering and leaving of this world.
The cynique in me did notice that the programme makers had covered all there bases to appeal to as wider audience as possible. I am hoping this isn't just to boost channel 4's ratings
The black man with prostate cancer , 11 children and no long term partner to care for him.
The middle class lady with breast cancer and marriage problems
The man with lung cancer still puffing away
The Mum coming to terms with leaving her children
All very emotive and done with sensitivity.
