  1. I’m still mad at Sally Wainright for killing Kate on Last Tango in Halifax. Not only did it check the box of killing a lesbian character, but it also continued the trope of killing black characters off. Nope… I’m through with her. I stopped watching the show after that and refuse to watch Gentleman Jack.
