Pshaw! Mitch is kind of like, walking up to strangers and showing naked baby pictures of Amy.

They filmed for a year but the documentary takes only half an hour. A bit disappointing...

^ Yes, but I still can't blame him.

That makes me so angry.

Bruised, battered and desparate for a fag she may be, but Amy is our 21st Century Piaf: flawed yet fabulous, tormented yet towering. Think of her this way and hope that the still remarkably young woman under the eyeliner thinks that way too. - Jude Rogers, The Word

I quite liked it. Part of it was filmed in St Lucia. An English couple asked Mitch to have their picture taken with Amy. The couple were polite and apologetic to Amy but she replied that if they were really sorry they'd leave her alone. Mitch was annoyed at her - it was a bit rude, but she had a point.

In other parts Mitch was talking to his therapist in London. She told him that if Amy was still drinking then she is still at risk of falling back into addiction. He admitted that he's in denial but said he just can't bear to think of it happening again. He was very scathing about Blake, especially his talking to the press. Janis also made an appearance.

He went back to St Lucia but Amy didn't want to be filmed. Then the doc covered her return to London and showed footage of her singing at a wedding last month. There was also a lot of home movie footage from Amy's childhood and we saw her grandma, who was beautiful - like Amy at her most stunning.

It was really more about Mitch as the parent of an addict than Amy herself. There were some rather bleak moments, like when Mitch visited the grave of his father who died at just 43. But overall the doc was not sensationalised and quite respectful in its tone.

^ Thanks for your review, Tara. It sounds well worth watching. I was dreading some kind of hideous Daphne-Barak style backstabbing expose - but this sounds quite good.

Thanks Jayne - it's much appreciated.

I watched Part One, and I couldn't tell if the show was about Amy or Mitch. Hard to tell. Oh, well - whatevs.

Just finished Part Two. I'm just shaking my head here. 'The cameras make her uncomfortable'. Then just stop. Stop the whole project. Don't make the film.

That 'therapist' was a fucking joke.

I would have thought that Amy agreed to the documentary being made? I bet there is only one thing that has pissed her off and that is Mitch slagging Blake.

I doubt that's the only reason she's upset. She knows Mitch can't stand Blake - and has known it for years. He admitted the cameras made her uncomfortable. She didn't exactly seem like a willing participant, and may have agreed to it to make Mitch happy.
