A must see for Joanna Lumley fans
27 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching this series, and i was disappointed that it only ran for two series. The comedy that comes through each episode is brilliant.

Joanna Lumley as Kate Swift revels in being self centred, but shows her true feelings to the inner circle she surrounds herself with. John Bowe as Jack Booker is hilarious as a drunken reporter who falls in with Kate, and Nadine Garner as ex-jailbird Gloria O'Grady adds the finishing touch to a fantastic show that is completely underrated.

This show deserves a UK DVD release for all the fans that will remember this fine show. It is a must see for fans of Joanna Lumley, a role where she shines and revels at being a bitch....and she plays it beautifully
