Probably one of the best soaps in the UK, here's why!
17 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Firstly, I am a big fan, but for good reasons! Hollyoaks has an amazing ability to not take itself too seriously and then at other times it can deal extremely well with story lines or issues over soaps dare not touch. Teacher student relationship, cot death, racism, and it does so brilliantly. The character development has been great and the cast is getting better and better, I wasn't too happy with the Hunter family leaving but the Ashoworth's are pretty cool. Give it a try you might like it! Oh, and just stay tuned for a few episodes, actors like Chris Fountain and Gemma Atkinson have made this the show it is. It rocks, there's just so much good in it!
