I did not expect to be hooked, but I am. Within ten minutes of the first episode, I am pausing the show and looking up the meaning of the title. The Punjabi word ‘Tabbar’ means ‘Family’. The letter ‘T’ is pronounced as you would ‘Tomatoes’, in Hindi you would use the ‘T’ in ‘Tamatar’ and not the gentle “T’ in ‘Tum’.

The story is as old as Joe Pesci searching for his duffle bag with eight severed heads (8 Heads in a Duffel Bag). That was a comedy, this is more like Liam Neeson in Taken using his special skills to bring his daughter back. This is like Nick Nolte’s lawyer who has to defend his home from a rapist he got convicted 14 years ago (Cape Fear). Tabbar is also about a family that finds itself falling deeper and deeper into darkness, but is unable to stop. Tabbar is about the lies you have to tell as a family to hide one wrong and watch everything break down.

I burst into tears watching Pavan Malhotra’s Omkar stand up to walk to the old fridge for the insulin injection for his wife Sargun (Supriya Pathak), because my dad does the same for mum. This is home, and you recognise the innate decency of the man. But then you wonder what devils drove this elderly couple to do what they did at night at the farm. You meet the two sons, and you know you have met them somewhere. You love the simplicity of their life problems: the kitchen exhaust fan is broken. If this is an introduction to a family, then I would want them to win against all the bad guys that are out there.

Ranveer Shorey plays the bad guy Ajit Sodhi who’s running for elections. His brother Maheep does everything to ruin those chances as younger brothers are wont to. But there’s the scary, super scary character called Multan. Ali Mughal offers us the same ‘vibes’ as Vishal Tyagi of Paatal Lok. And this dude, too, has a dog as his constant companion in the SUV. He’s Ajit Sodhi’s muscleman.

Omkar and Sargun love their two sons Happy and Tyagi, and their characters are everything you’d expect them to be. The son of a cop should become a cop, right? So Happy has been sent off to Delhi from Jalandhar to study for his UPSC exams so he could become an IPS officer and fulfill his father’s dreams. Omkar is also an ex-cop. Tyagi is the younger sibling, wanting to become a rap star and has dreams of having his own channel which thousands will watch.

An encounter with Maheep Sodhi turns the life of this family upside down. And just like a stone when Maheep falls into the deep pond of Omkar’s Happy House (ironically, that’s the name of their home), the ripples affect their god-fearing neighbour, his wife and daughter Palak. Now Happy loves Palak, but she’s engaged to Happy’s cousin Lucky who’s a cop. Lucky is Omkar’s older brother’s son. The ripples from Maheep’s entry into Omkar’s home reach you too.

I watched in horror as their truly happy home turned into a nightmare. There’s blood spilt and not by choice. The more they try to hide it all, the worse it gets. And the storytelling is so compelling that you will watch as the lies and blood keep mounting. The scariest part (and yes, rather over the top) is the appearance of a crow that shatters Sargun's already fragile mind. Like Lady Macbeth, she too begins to see blood on her hands. Omkar tries to explain that they had to get rid of a bad guy who entered their home, but she realises that no amount of stepping into the cleansing water of the gurudwara is going to clean her conscience.

Lies, clues to murder, more lies, politics that get murkier with every episode, suspicion and violence… Tabbar will give you sleepless nights. It is a tough watch because we know what Omkar is doing may be wrong, but it is for his family. And it doesn’t help when Baba Farid’s quotes are laid out at the beginning of each episode. As the plot turns murkier and we realise that the director is forcing you to watch what is unpalatable. It is as Baba Farid says, ‘Farida galiye chikkad door ghar, naal pyare neh,/ chalau toh bhejje kambli, rahaan ta tutte neh.’ (O Farid, street is muddy, house of my beloved is far,/ My clothes get wet if I walk, stay I lose my love.’)

Choices like these are hard. And Omkar has to make them for his family. At first, Happy wants to tell the cops and come clean. But he sees a cop at the station beat a confession out of a suspect, and he comes back, knowing that he has no option but to become a part of the deceit.

The story is powerful, no doubt, but the way the story pans out is marvelous. Not an extra tear is shed. The tears of regret belong to only Sargun. The two sons and their father, her husband, have set her world on fire. This is a story of greed, crime and circumstances that turn good, honest people into villains. But then why does my heart stop in its tracks when I see an electrical strip bob dangerously over the water? Why do I cry with Pavan Malhotra? Why do I feel my heart sink into my stomach when Lucky begins to suspect that everything is not all right at Happy House?

Apart from a bit of an over-acting conscience from Sargun and the unpredictability of Ranveer Shorey’s character, everything is reined in tightly. It’s a controlled explosion of my feelings as I watch the show, filled with darkness, and the couplet from Baba Farid stays with me:

‘Kaale mere kapde, kaala mera ves,/ gunhi bhariyan main phiraan, lok kahein darves.’ (Black are my clothes, black is my garb,/ Full of failings I wander, people call me sage.’)

This is a superb series that will shake up your views on good versus bad. Watch it!

Game of Thrones (season 8)

Television series season

Season of television series

The eighth and final season of the fantasydrama television series Game of Thrones, produced by HBO, premiered on April 14, 2019, and concluded on May 19, 2019. Unlike the first six seasons, which consisted of ten episodes each, and the seventh season, which consisted of seven episodes, the eighth season consists of only six episodes.

The final season depicts the culmination of the series' two primary conflicts: the Great War against the Army of the Dead, and the Last War for control of the Iron Throne. In the first half of the season, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and many of the main characters converge at Winterfell to face the Dead. During the battle, Bran lures the Night King into the open where Arya destroys him; the army of White Walkers and wights crumble. Meanwhile, Cersei Lannister remains in King's Landing and strengthens her forces to set traps for a weakened Daenerys. The second half of the season resumes the war for the throne as Daenerys suffers losses until she finally assaults King's Landing upon Drogon, her last dragon. She defeats Cersei's forces, burns the city and kills Cersei and her brother Jaime. Daenerys vows to "liberate" the whole world as she has liberated the capital of Westeros. Unable to sway her from her destructive path, an agonized Jon kills her. Drogon flies away with her body, but not before destroying the Iron Throne with dragonfire. The leaders of Westeros choose Bran Stark as King, who grants the North independence and appoints Tyrion his Hand. Sansa Stark is crowned Queen in the North. Arya sails west, and Jon leads the Wildlings north of the Wall.

The season was filmed from October 2017 to July 2018 and largely consists of original content not found in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, while also incorporating material that Martin has revealed to showrunners about the upcoming novels in the series, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. The season was adapted for television by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

The season was met with mixed reviews from critics, in contrast to the largely critical acclaim of previous seasons, and is the lowest-rated of the series on the website Rotten Tomatoes. While the performances, production values and music score were praised, criticism was mainly directed at the shorter runtime of the season as well as numerous creative decisions made by the showrunners regarding the plot and character arcs; many commentators deemed it to be a disappointing conclusion to the series.

The season received 32 nominations at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards, the most for a single season of television in history.[1] It won twelve, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Peter Dinklage.

Recurring cast[edit]

The recurring actors listed here are those who appeared in season 8. They are listed by the region in which they first appear.

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

HBO announced the eighth and final season of the fantasydrama television series Game of Thrones in July 2016.[35][36] Like the previous season, it largely consists of original content not found in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.[37] As Benioff had verified in March 2015, the creators have talked with Martin about the end of the series, and they "know where things are heading". He explained that the ends of both the television and the book series would unavoidably be thematically similar, although Martin could still make some changes to surprise the readers.[38] When asked about why the television series is coming to an end, he said, "this is where the story ends."[39]

Crew[edit]

Series creators and executive producers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss serve as showrunners for the eighth season. The directors for the eighth season were announced in September 2017. Miguel Sapochnik, who previously directed "The Gift" and "Hardhome" in the fifth season, as well as "Battle of the Bastards" and "The Winds of Winter" in the sixth season, returned to direct two episodes. David Nutter, who had directed two episodes each in the second, third, and fifth seasons, including "The Rains of Castamere" and "Mother's Mercy", directed three episodes for the eighth season. The final episode of the series was directed by Benioff and Weiss, who have previously co-directed two episodes, taking credit for one episode each.

At the series' South by Southwest panel on March 12, 2017, Benioff and Weiss announced the writers for the series to be Dave Hill (episode 1) and Bryan Cogman (episode 2). The showrunners divided up the screenplay for the remaining four episodes amongst themselves.[41]

Writing[edit]

Writing for the eighth season started with a 140-page outline. Benioff said that the divvying up process and who should write what section became more difficult because "this would be the last time that [they] would be doing this."[42]

Filming[edit]

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, HBO programming president Casey Bloys said that instead of the series finale's being a feature film, the final season would be "six one-hour movies" on television. He continued, "The show has proven that TV is every bit as impressive and in many cases more so, than film. What they're doing is monumental."[43] Filming officially began on October 23, 2017[44] and concluded in July 2018.[45] Many exterior scenes were filmed in Northern Ireland and a few in Dubrovnik, Croatia; Paint Hall Studios in Belfast were used for interior filming.[46] The direwolf scenes were filmed in Alberta, Canada.[47]

Casting[edit]

The eighth season saw the return of Tobias Menzies as Edmure Tully and Lino Facioli as Robin Arryn in the final episode, neither of whom appeared in the seventh season.[34]Marc Rissmann was cast as Harry Strickland, the commander of the Golden Company.[33]

Content[edit]

Co-creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have said that the seventh and eighth seasons would likely comprise fewer episodes, saying that after the sixth season, they were "down to our final 13 episodes after this season. We're heading into the final lap".[48][49] Benioff and Weiss said that they were unable to produce 10 episodes in the series' usual 12 to 14-month timeframe, as Weiss explained, "It's crossing out of a television schedule into more of a mid-range movie schedule."[48] HBO confirmed in July 2016 that the seventh season would consist of seven episodes and would premiere later than usual in mid-2017 because of the later filming schedule.[50] Benioff and Weiss later confirmed that the eighth season would consist of six episodes and would premiere later than usual for the same reason.[51]

Benioff and Weiss said about the end of the series: "From the beginning, we've wanted to tell a 70-hour movie. It will turn out to be a 73-hour movie, but it's stayed relatively the same of having the beginning, middle[,] and now we're coming to the end. It would have been really tough if we lost any core cast members along the way[;] I'm very happy we've kept everyone and we get to finish it the way we want to."[51] The first two episodes are, respectively, 54 and 58 minutes long, while the final four episodes of the series are all more than an hour in length—episode three is 82 minutes (making it the longest episode of the series), episodes four and five are each 78 minutes,[52] and the final episode is 80 minutes.[53]

A two-hour documentary, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, which documents the making of the eighth season, aired on May 26, the week after the series finale.[54]

Music[edit]

Ramin Djawadi returned as the series' composer for the eighth season.[55] The soundtrack album for the season was released digitally on May 19, 2019 and was released on CD on July 19, 2019.[56]

Release[edit]

Broadcast[edit]

The season premiered on April 14, 2019 in the United States on HBO.[57]

Marketing[edit]

On December 6, 2018, HBO released the first official teaser trailer for the eighth season.[58] A second teaser trailer was released on January 13, 2019, which announced the premiere date as April 14, 2019. The trailer was directed by David Nutter.[59] HBO released a promotional advertisement with Bud Light on February 3, 2019 during Super Bowl LIII.[60] Later, first-look photos of several main characters were released on February 6, 2019.[61] On February 28, posters of many of the main characters sitting upon the Iron Throne were released.[29] The official full trailer was released on March 5, 2019.[30]

Illegal distribution[edit]

The season premiere was reportedly pirated by nearly 55 million people within the first 24 hours of release. Of these numbers, 9.5 million downloads came from India, 5.2 million came from China, and 4 million came from the U.S.[62] On April 21, 2019, it was reported that the second episode of the season was illegally leaked online hours before it aired due to being streamed early on Amazon Prime Germany.[63] On May 5, 2019, it was reported that the fourth episode of the season was leaked online, with footage from the episode circulating on social media.[64]

Home media[edit]

The season was released on Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on December 3, 2019.[65]

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

The season received mixed reviews from critics.[67] On Rotten Tomatoes, it holds an approval rating of 55% based on 20 reviews with an average rating of 6.47/10, the lowest rating for a season of Game of Thrones.[a] The website's critical consensus reads: "Game of Thrones' final season shortchanges the women of Westeros, sacrificing satisfying character arcs for spectacular set-pieces in its mad dash to the finish line".[66]

The first three episodes were met with generally positive feedback. On Metacritic, the premiere garnered a score of 75 out of 100 based on 12 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[69] "The Long Night" was praised for the cinematography and grand scale of the battle between the living and the dead,[70] but was criticized for its lack of catharsis, disorienting lighting, and the anticlimactic ending of the White Walker storyline that had been built up for seven seasons.[71][72][73] "The Last of the Starks" and "The Bells" were criticized for their rushed pacing, writing, and deviation from character development, with "The Last of the Starks" being labeled as "anticlimactic" and "a huge letdown".[79] "The Iron Throne" was described as "divisive", and according to Rotten Tomatoes, the series finale represents "a modest rebound" but it "went out with a whimper".[80][81] "The Bells" and "The Iron Throne" are the worst-reviewed episodes of the entire series on the website, with an approval of 49% and 48% respectively, while the last four episodes of the season "plunged to record low scores".[74][82][83][84]

David Sims of The Atlantic wrote that the final season "has been the same story over and over again: a lot of tin-eared writing trying to justify some of the most drastic story developments imaginable, as quickly as possible. As usual, the actors did their best with what was on the page."[80] Lucy Mangan of The Guardian considered the season a "rushed business. It has wasted opportunities, squandered goodwill, and failed to do justice to its characters or its actors."[85] Zack Beauchamp of Vox wrote that it "dispensed almost entirely with trying to make sense of its characters' internal motivations—let alone the complex political reality that its psychological realism initially helped create".[86] Huw Fullerton of Radio Times said the final season was not "Thrones at its best" but still had "some sort of ending for the characters". For Fullerton, the season was "like the finale — some bits I liked, one or two I loved, an awful lot that leaves me scratching my head".[87]

Writing for USA Today, Kelly Lawler felt that the series ultimately betrayed its "identity" of "tragedy and injustice" with a "pandering" ending.[88] Judy Berman of Time said that the series failed to complete the answer to "conflicting ideas about freedom, justice and leadership", themes that had brought depth to the series.[89] Ellen Gray of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Darren Franich of Entertainment Weekly agreed that the final season was not as complex as previous seasons.[90][91] Franich stated that the "broseph mentality shined through," shunting the development and interaction between female characters. Franich criticized Cersei doing nothing this season, regarding it "one complete failure of imagination", as well as the ultimate primary focus on the reactions and thoughts of the male characters, such as "Jon Snow, the least complicated main character."[91] Writing for The Hollywood Reporter, Maureen Ryan condemned the season’s reductive treatment of women, and "decisions set up and executed with little or no foresight or thoughtfulness", declaring the penultimate episode "The Bells" as "Game of Thrones at its worst".[92]

Audience response[edit]

A petition to HBO for "competent writers" to remake the eighth season of Game of Thrones in a manner "that makes sense" was started on Change.org after "The Last of the Starks" aired, but went viral after "The Bells" aired and saw Daenerys's arc take a significant turn.[99][100] The petition described showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss as "woefully incompetent writers".[101][102][103][104][105] By September 6, 2019, it received over 1.73 million signatures.[102][106][107]Digital Spy reported that some fans of the series criticized the season for the way it handled several character arcs and the "rushed" pacing.[102][108] The petition's creator stated that he never expected HBO to remake the season, but saw the petition as a message "of frustration and disappointment at its core".[102]

The petition was labelled as "disrespectful to the crew and the filmmakers" by actress Sophie Turner (who plays Sansa Stark),[109][110] "ridiculous", "weird, juvenile" by actor Isaac Hempstead Wright (who plays Bran Stark),[110][111] "rude" by actor Jacob Anderson (who plays Grey Worm)[112] and "fandom extremism" by actress Carice van Houten (who plays Melisandre).[113] Emilia Clarke (who plays Daenerys Targaryen) indicated she was previously unaware of the petition, but gave a warmer response when she was asked what she would want to see happen if the eighth season were redone: "I can only speak to my own character, and the people that I interact with on the show. But I would've loved some more scenes with me and Missandei. I would've loved some more scenes with me and Cersei".[114]

Richard Roeper, writing for the Chicago Sun Times, wrote: "Over the last 25+ years, I've reviewed thousands of movies and dozens of TV shows, and I don't think I've ever seen the level of fan (and to a lesser degree, critical) vitriol leveled at [this show] in recent weeks". However, Roeper noted that social media was not yet widely used during much of this time period.[115]

Lenika Cruz, writing for The Atlantic, wrote that with the end of the series, "there are folks who don't feel as though the hours and hours they've devoted to this show have been wasted", but "there are many others" who felt the opposite.[80] Kelly Lawler of USA Today wrote that the ultimate ending of the series was not what some fans "signed up for".[88]

CBS News has described several plot points that some fans are dissatisfied with: the character arcs of Daenerys and Jaime; the fates of Jaime, Missandei, Rhaegal, and the Night King; the Battle of Winterfell being visually too dark; the "basic existence of Euron Greyjoy"; and "Jon's treatment of Ghost".[104]

Cast response[edit]

In an interview with The New Yorker, Emilia Clarke said she had to hold back her innermost anxiety from Beyoncé: "I was just, like, Oh, my God, my absolute idol in life is saying that she likes me, and I know for a fact that by the end of this season she's going to hate me. ... All I wanted to scream was 'Please, please still like me even though my character turns into a mass-killing dictator! Please still think that I'm representing women in a really fabulous way.'"[114] Clarke said she was shocked at Daenerys's turn and her last scene because "it comes out of nowhere". Although she stands by the character, Clarke said it was a "struggle" reading the scripts. As for what she would have changed, she said she would have liked more scenes between Daenerys and Missandei and Daenerys and Cersei; "I just think more dissection and those beautifully written scenes that the boys have between characters — that we are more than happy to contently sit there and watch ten minutes of two people talking, because it's beautiful. I just wanted to see a bit more of that."[116]

In an interview published as the final season premiered, Kit Harington said he felt "defiant" about the series at the time, adding that "whatever critic spends half an hour writing about this season and makes their [negative] judgement on it, in my head they can go fuck themselves. I know how much work was put into this ... Now if people feel let down by [this final season], I don't give a fuck—because everyone [working on the series] tried their hardest. ... In the end, no one's bigger fans of the show than we are".[117] Harrington later said he expected the ending was going to divide fans, and he was concerned the final two episodes would be deemed sexist: "We have Cersei and Dany, two leading women, who fall". "The justification is: Just because they're women, why should they be the goodies? They're the most interesting characters in the show. You can't just say the strong women are going to end up the good people ... It's going to open up discussion ... And when have you ever seen a woman play a dictator?" Harrington also said he was disappointed his character Jon did not kill the Night King.[118]

Nathalie Emmanuel, who played Missandei, was heartbroken when she read her character's sudden demise: "I think the fact that she died in chains when she was a slave her whole life, that for me was a pungent cut for that character, that felt so painful". Emmanuel, the only woman of color who was a regular cast member for the last several seasons, said, "It's safe to say that Game of Thrones has been under criticism for their lack of representation, and the truth of it is that Missandei and Grey Worm have represented so many people because there's only two of them."[119] Emmanuel added that she wished she "had more time or scenes this season maybe with Daenerys or even with Cersei, scenes where we get to see her being brilliant before she dies. I think that might have eased the pain a bit more for people, and reinforcing a friendship that she and Dany had because we haven't really seen anything for a few seasons."[118]

Conleth Hill, who played Varys, told Entertainment Weekly that the seventh and eighth seasons were "kind of frustrating" and not his "favorite", noting that Varys "kind of dropped off the edge". Hill reacted with "dismay" to Varys apparently "losing his knowledge": "If he was such an intelligent man and he had such resources, how come he didn't know about things?" After being "very bummed to not have a final scene with [Littlefinger]", Hill was "bummed not to have any reaction to [Littlefinger] dying, if he was [Varys'] nemesis". Also, once the series ran out of book material as a source, Hill noted that "special niche interest in weirdos wasn't as effective as it had been". However, Hill was "not dissatisfied on the whole" regarding the series.[120]

Lena Headey had a "mixed" initial reaction to the manner of death for Cersei Lannister. Headey said she would rather have had Cersei die by "some big piece or fight with somebody". Fellow actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Headey discussed it and then appreciated the scene, viewing it as "the perfect ending" for Cersei and Jaime as they "came into the world together and now they leave together".[121] Headey mentioned that a scene of Cersei's miscarriage was cut.[122][123]

Sophie Turner said she would like to have seen "Sansa and Cersei reunited, or Arya and Cersei", but she was happy with the ending for her character.[118] Maisie Williams said the biggest regret for her character Arya was not getting a scene with Cersei, and possibly killing her, "even if it means [Arya] dies too". She later embraced Arya's happier arc for the last season.[124]

Gwendoline Christie, who played Brienne, said she was "dismayed" by her character turn, explaining that "It was partially because I read about this character [in Martin's novels] before I saw the show. So we all have our own ideas about how we think the character is going to develop. Sometimes your ideas become set in your mind, and sometimes David and Dan write something you didn't expect and find difficult to comprehend." "[Brienne] has been very impactful in the way I think about women and in the way they're portrayed in the media and the way they're treated in society", she noted.[118]

Other cast members, such as Charles Dance, Natalia Tena, and Joe Dempsie, also expressed disappointment over the series' finale.[118][125]

Worst dry hair and worst service!

I wouldnt recommend additional lenghts hair to anyone. Wasted £400! Worst quality of hair you could possibly imagine.They require you to take the hair out and send it back in so it can be checked by the faulty goods team ( it took 3 weekd for that to happen, I had to spend more money and buy clip ins as it took so long and beeing without extensions ruins my confidence )and when it finally was checked they blame you as they cant see any fault even if everybody else can see it. Refund was declined as aprently quality team never seen a problem. Hair ir dry and has split ends after wearing them only a month. Worst hair and worst service ever!

Hair has definitely changed

Hair has definitely changed! I have ordered this colour at least 3 times and therefore didnt think twice about putting them in b4 getting my colour done. Left hairdressers with my colour on and now noticed hair isn’t matching. Put it against old extensions which just came out and the new hair is clearly darker. Now going to have to pay even more money to try match my hair to the extensions.

Reply from Additional Lengths Ltd

Hi Emma,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review about your purchase.

Older extensions have been washed, subjected to heat and everything else we put our hair through on a daily basis - so over time these will fade, just like your own hair when it has been coloured. New hair is going to appear brighter, and bolder in colour in comparison to an older, used set.

We'd recommend matching extensions to your hair colour after it hs been coloured to avoid this happening again.

Kind regards

Went into the Stockton store had a great experience. I had shaved my hair earlier in the year and had lost all confidence and was interested in getting extensions. I asked if they would work as my hair is only a couple of inches long. They took there time to use samples to see how my hair would lay with extensions in. They colour matched and even helped decide how much hair I would need as I have thick hair. Definitely would recommend, they also helped with suggesting salons that have worked with extensions before to help cut and style them for a big event at the weekend. I want to say a massive thank you, I got home and clipped then on to gage how much hair I'd want cutting and I felt like my old confident self, I even cried to my mum as I was so happy. Thank you again lady's for lifting me up.

Never received product.. no replies to my emails.. DO NOT ORDER

*UPDATE* additional lengths replied to my review as you can see accusing me of lying!?! I can assure that nothing was left with my neighbours. I am not a liar and my review is completely honest. A photo of my neighbours house taken from a distance away is not proof of postage? Also the name given of the person who allegedly accepted the parcel is a fake name (which is fraud).

*Also* I did not agree to the extensions being delivered anywhere except to my house.

They are still saying ‘we are sorry you didn’t receive it on time’ when I honestly did not receive it at all!?

*If* they had handled this professionally I most likely would have re-ordered from them again but after this experience I will be advising my friends (who also use hair extensions) to never order from them as this has been the worst online shopping experience I’ve ever had.

Please read until the end.

I ordered a full head of hair extensions and paid for Saturday delivery. The hair never arrived on the Saturday and I then found that DPD (the delivery company used by additional lengths) had attempted to deliver it to the wrong address (I had given my correct address) so there was no reason for this.

I was travelling abroad on the Sunday and asked DPD If they could deliver the hair in the morning before I leave. They informed me that they would put in a special request (yet again I did not receive the hair).

Later I had a message from DPD to say the hair had been delivered to a neighbour called ‘S JONES’ and provided me with a photograph of my neighbours house taken from a good distance away. I instantly became worried as I have no neighbour called ‘S JONES’. After contacting my neighbours and also visits to their house from my parents it became clear that they had received no delivery from DPD at all.

It then became concerning that I was given a fake name of someone who allegedly accepted my parcel and a photo of my neighbours house from a great distance away and nothing had been delivered to any of my neighbours.

Immediately I contacted additional lengths who were very patronising and their replies were ‘I am sorry you were abroad and didn’t receive your parcel on time’ - clearly that was not the issue! The issue was that I have not received my parcel at all!

After constant emails to additional lengths all I received was short patronising (unprofessional/ careless) replies, which were basically accusing me of lying. They said they could see the parcel had been delivered.. even though I had explained that a photo of my neighbours house and a fake name given as allegedly receiving the parcel is not proof of delivery?!

I then made contact with DPD the delivery company who done an investigation and advised me that they can not disclose any information with me and I have to speak to additional lengths.

As advised by DPD I contacted additional lengths in regards to the investigation into where the hair I paid for is. It has now been one week since this email was sent and I still do not have a response from them regarding this investigation.

I cannot blame DPD the delivery company as I did not place my order through them I placed it with additional lengths (they chose to use DPD not me so they need to take responsibility).

DPD are fast at responding to my concerns I wish I could say the same for additional lengths who have now ignored my last email for one week (even though their website states 24- 48 hours).

I have been left with no choice but to request a charge back through my bank as additional lengths have only refunded me the postage.

However, I did not receive the item I paid them for and they refuse to take any responsibility or email me back in regards to the investigation carried out by DPD a while ago. Terrible, unprofessional service on their side.

Because of how horrendous this experience has been I will be in contact with trading standards/
Consumer rights as I feel the way they handle customers is not acceptable to any standard.

I am sure they will reply to this review with a patronising comment but I have kept my review completely honest and really do not wish anybody to have to go through this stressful experience.

Luckily I have all correspondence with DPD and additional lengths saved to go to my bank (and trading standards) and proceed with a charge back as I have given additional lengths more than enough time.

All I asked of them is for the product I paid for or a full refund (not only the postage).

I will also leave my review on multiple social media platforms in the hope nobody else will go through a similar experience and additional lengths may hopefully start treating customers better.

Hi Chloe,

Thank you for leaving your review about your experience with us. We are sorry that your experience led to such a low score.

DPD delivered the parcel to a neighbour in your absence, when you informed us this had not been received we opened a case with DPD.

DPD closed the case telling us the parcel had been correctly delivered and they provided a photo and GPS tracking, as they do for all parcels they deliver. Unfortunately, whilst they shared the outcome of their investigation with you we were not informed of the outcome of this via our proper channels.

We always recommend our customers order in advance of any event so that any problems with delivery/products can be rectified before the date they are needed.

We are sorry that the parcel never made it to you in time.

We're having further discussions with our delivery partners as to how we can ensure the same does not happen to any of our customers and whilst we are sorry that your parcel didn't arrive - we are thankful that you've been able to draw some of these issues to our attention so we can prevent the same happening to our other customers.

Extensions are excellent quality really soft and do not tangle. Had the pre-bonded in for 6to9 months with no issues still as silky as when I bought them. Had to send something back as I ordered a few different colours and they refunded me immediately. Just ordered the tapes in colour 4/8 which are stunning. Highly recommended and im fussy so that's well deserved.

VERY POOR QUALITY

HAIR IS BREAKING AND CANT RE USE. I bought the remi catchet elegance nano tops from additional lengths. Every time after I wash my hair the extensions fall out (usually two strands at a time). I appreciate sometimes you lose a few as I have had extensions for a long time, but I have had these fitted for 2 months and I have lost over 10. The small piece of string that is used to attach the strand breaks off of the hair so these now cannot be re used. I don’t mind strands falling out but I cannot re use these now ??? & this hair isn’t cheap

Over valuation for customs made it very expensive

I received my order in good time thanks, however you included 'shipping" in the total value for customs at £36.61  This meant that I had to pay over €13 to customs which was much more than it should have been.   

How can 'shipping' be part of the 'value' on the front of your package, when the product only cost £13.53?

No other company I have ordered from did this. I emailed with this comment a week ago to give you a chance to reply, but got none.

This is a pity for future orders because the delivery was quick and the product is excellent

Ordered a colour and had to return, refund processed within 3 working days, always quick delivery.
Great company.
