Indeed. By the fourth episode the plot was getting so complicated I realised I needed the English just to keep up with things rather than having the general gist. But understanding most of the Welsh and having English subtitles at the bottom of the screen is really doing my head in. Having said that it's really helping me get my ears into picking up the colloquial short forms: 'sa' 'bod' for 'sai'n gwybod (which is still rather 'South' for me anyway!).
I'm getting the impression no-one's going to come out well out of this. That the moral of the tale is that by trying to protect people you care about, you start not being squeaky clean and get into a mess, which gets others in a mess, until everyone is in a mess, but can't blame anyone because they are all in the same position.
i don't know, since learning Welsh I've ended up reading crime novels and watching series like Un Bore Mercher and Bang, which really weren't my cup of tea, but I've even started watching gritty Bollywood Crime films, like Kahaani , rather than my usual all singing all dancing Rom-Coms. To be honest can't we just have some nice films about how someone struggles to overcome their personal demons to realise how pretty flowers are or something?
Then there's being new to Welsh drama and my head spins wondering why Kizzy Crawford is a police officer, and other trying not to be influences by previous characters Welsh actors have played. I've already forgotten who the Welsh Tory leader from Byw Celwydd is in this! It;'s all doing my head in, but in a nice way.
