Brilliant series, more please.
10 November 1999 | by (Ashington, Northumberland) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent series, the acting is superb by all concerned. Though I must complement Pauline Quirke as she brings such a range of emotions to the role. I laughed like a drain at last nights episode when they were running down the racecourse. Also the lesbian storyline is good, it made me feel indignant when she was being persecuted. I was also sad when she told her family and her father walked out of the room.They must have had such fun making this series.
