This was a very pleasant show set in a time that was doomed to be shortlived. The telephone exchange workers of "Bloody Darby" (as Sylvia once put it) live under the threat of automation - a poignant fate we know is not far from them, while going through their lives and loves in a small community where everyone knows and loves the "hello girls".
It is not a grand series, but it's nice. The music is great (I'd love to own the sound track), the characters are easily identified and, while never really making your heart race, they draw you in and make you care about what happens to them.
As with most short lived series, though, we never find out everything we want to know, which is a shame because these girls are worth knowing.
