The title

So, I've been thinking about the title a lot lately, since it is only revealed once in the last episode of series 1 (''you and your sensitive skin'') but it's still not very clear. I still haven't exactly figured out the different meanings, so I wonder what you guys think about it.

Re: The title

"You and your sensitive skin", that's the first thing that came to mind when I saw the title of this topic.
But I find it hard to come up with an explanation too, why exactly is it called 'Sensitive Skin'?
Could it possible have anything to do with the fact that Davina isn't very comfortable in her own skin anymore, and therefore she's very sensitive. Am I making any sense here or am I just talking bollocks? :lol:

Re: The title

No, that does make sense! Of course it has got something to do with Al who is literally very sensitive, but there is less simple explanation to it as well, but I haven't figured it out yet...

Re: The title

Davina's very sensitive as to what other people think of her, that's definitely one thing.
On the other hand, that goes for many of the characters in the series.
Anyway, perhaps another idea to put in your letter? ;)

Haha, well that sort demands for an answer back.. :lol: I still haven't figured this out yet - there are many explanations, maybe that is the whole point, that there isn't just one clear reason for picking this title... It's interesting though, just like the series itself. You need to watch it a couple of times in order to really understand it.
