fantastic Frances Barber scores with Real Women
20 October 1999 | by (Bradford, England) – See all my reviews

Only short, but I watched the first episode of the second series last night on BBC1. It was fantastic. The wonderful Frances Barber was a delight to watch; she should get far more credit than she generally receives. She gave a convincing, tight portrayal of the life of a professional lesbian.

Overall, I believe this to be the jewel in the BBC's crown of the Autumn season. The old stalwart of casualty despite being well acted and scripted is getting, in my opinion a little tired in format. Long live REAL WOMEN!
