Episode 11: Ballgowns and Letdowns

We're discussing: Derry Girls / Series 2 / Ep5 / 'The Prom'

Our own 3 Derry Girls delve into the murky, messy, fragile world of teenage friendship. Derry's Doctor Who connections are explored - could the Doctor be a Derry Girl? Pauline, Jeanie and Marie Louise reminisce about their own Prom dates and how nuns armed with rulers measured out a decent distance during the slow dances. As ever - many questions are asked. Are Derry people too pasty for Baywatch? Could nude sunbathing ever have taken off in Donegal and just how tight is too tight?
