I just LOVE the series and hope that we keep on getting it here in Australia
13 March 2004 | by (Victoria, Australia) – See all my reviews

I really like the show and think that the actors really play their parts so well, it is as if everything is really true. I was a little disappointed that baby Mary died, it made me feel so sad as that had happened to me a long time ago. But I watch the show every day and tape it if I am not going to be home. Even though I am not Scottish I can still understand the words but my husband can't understand them. I have been watching the show now for about 12 months and just hope that Australia keep on showing the series, it had been on here for a while before I got to know about it. I am glad that my friend (who is Scottish) told me to watch it. Best show on TV she said & I am inclined to agree with her.
