| A strong word
The C Word is a one off television film based on the book and blog writings of Lisa Lynch who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and died in 2013 at the age of just 33.

Lynch worked closely with the adaptation of this BBC film until she died and suggested that Sheridan Smith portray her.

Sheridan gives a moving portrayal of a newlywed fighting the disease with honesty, bravery and some humour. Her blog gave aid and comfort to many others.

I think some of the worse aspects of the side effects of chemotherapy were sanitised for the screen. The reality is a lot worse and I think the financial pressures they would had faced although touched on probably was more of a worry to them in reality.

I would not say the film is affirming, you could kind of guess from some scenes regarding her recovery that this was going to have a grim ending but its the journey that counts.

I think its a certainty that Sheridan Smith will be up for more awards.
