Not so bad...
13 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As I remember, the first series of this was well-cast and good humoured, more immediate than 'Cold Feet', and with less soap-opera situations. Emma Fielding and Steve Nicolson were particularly good, and even Ardal O'Hanlan showed a bit of range.

The second series was horribly sentimental. Most of the cast were replaced by worse-looking, worse actors. All responsible should never work in television ever again. But they probably don't, because it's a fickle industry.

The funniest episode had a German getting high on the herb and vapourising cows with a shotgun. I remember it well.
