Dry, melancholic and quite moving
15 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This series was not to everyone's taste. It was not a laugh-out-loud comedy. Instead it was an interesting and bravely-written piece, with some dry, rather melancholic humour in it. On a number of occasions, the script-writers could have gone for a warm fuzzy moment with the Tom Bell character coming out of his grumpy shell, but they went for integrity of character instead of the cheap feel-good moment. This in turn enabled them to show the vulnerability of the outwardly quite angry and hard Holly Aird character.

In showing his loneliness and her vulnerability, it was quite moving at times, and deserves more respect than your average sitcom.
