Should have been axed long before it was
20 January 2004 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

No wonder the world gets a negative view of the Scots when they watched this poor excuse for a programme. So bleak and downright miserable it was depressing and the acting and dialogue was senseless and like every other soap involved nothing but people having a war of words. Luckily they axed it 12 years later than they should have. Good riddance!!!
