Denise Van Outen,
I am surprised that there are so few contributions for this show! Well written and acted but I guess that it was set in such a depressing period it failed to really catch on as light entertainment. Regard it as a dramatised documentary it is hard to fault. I suppose it had a special pull for me as it was set in the period when my parents were setting up home and it had echoes of their stories. I have yet to see the final series although I guess it was not as good (no follow on from that series ) so perhaps it is just as well that the first impressions are my last. I saw most of the reruns when shown on the Yesterday channel last year and for me it held up very well. I am sure that the author was being semi-autobiographical as he captures the aspirations, dreams and perspectives of the period so well.
