29 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this series but why are none of the regular cast members listed on this page? Lesley Sharp and Lorraine Ashbourne to name just two of them. Mrs Mullen, Mr Mullen, Matthew Mullen, Luke Mullen, Jo Mullen, Theresa Mullen, Geraldine, Dave, Rick all of them are missing! What's going on? I tried to find out the name of an actress who was in this series and her name is not listed. A lot of the actors in this series have gone on to star in many other very watchable programmes. It is disappointing when you look for information on this site and it is missing. I looked for details of a recent programme and there was no information about it at all! I know it must take some time to catch up but I really find this site useful and have been quite disappointed lately with it.
