Comparisons between Effy and Tony

I have noticed that while the new generation of skins doesn't take on the same story lines as the first generation, there are comparisons to be made. In the second series Tony suffered from depression and just generally not being himself after being hit by a bus. He was reserved and quite and spent his time trying to figure out how to get back to being the person he once was. Effy has now gone off the deep end with severe depression and hallucinations (not linked to any head trauma, and most likely due to her chaotic upbringing - divorced parents, drug use etc.). While I am a huge fan of skins I think that they should try and focus on creating a new story for the youngest member of the Stonehem family instead of rehashing series two ideas.

i like the similarities between tony and effys storylines,i like how they like twisted it and kept elements of the first one (tonys), as well as adding in new and exciting things too(i.e. SPOILER ALERT freddie's death after effy said that she still loved him)
