Trivia

In 2010 the plot demanded that male escort Lewis Archer's advert appeared in "The Lady" magazine. The publication actually placed this mock-up in a genuine issue - and received numerous complaints from aggrieved readers over the 'incorrect' (i.e. fictitious) contact details. See more »

British TV at it's Best
9 August 2003 | by (Milton Keynes, England) – See all my reviews

If you want to see British TV at it's best then look no further, This is a high class soap opera which has won many awards, The performances in this show sometimes outshine those that have won Oscars. The premise of the series is the following of lives in an old terraced street in Manchester. Each resident is different, it would be boring if they were. The Street is famous for it's comic humour, in the midst of a dramatic scene you are always guaranteed a laugh. It is a must see programme. It is the top rated programme in the UK.
