Where the heart isn't !!
3 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do like this feel good programme which is great for a Sunday night Prime time between 8pm and 9pm. Although it is a bit of a soap, every episode self contained. At 8.30pm everything is doom and gloom problems abound. However by 8.55pm. all problems have disappeared and everything is fine and dandy. The series is set in the small West Yorkshire fictional town of Skelthwaite. Almost all of the regular cast either work in the local health centre or a toilet roll factory. Almsot all of the regular adult male cast play for the towns rugby club. There has been a complete change of cast since the first series started. The theme song, heard over the opening titles is that this a a great little place to live in and that Home is where the heart is. Unfortunately as all of the original cast have left and regular cast leave all the while it would appear to be where the heart isn't !!
