Brilliant soap for all ages.
2 June 1999 | by (Burnley, England) – See all my reviews

Hollyoaks is brilliant! It's a very enjoyable soap for all ages, especially teenagers. It can be funny, serious and emotional, but never goes too over the top. Unlike most British soaps, it keeps away from being morbid and depressing, even with serious storylines. The storylines used are always dealt with sensitively and carefully to make it very realistic. Please tune in, you'll love it!
