Best soap in Britain
18 February 2005 | by (Pembrokeshire, Wales) – See all my reviews

Pobol Y Cwm is set in the village of Cwmderi in Carmarthenshire (not Ceredigion or Cardiganshire to give it it's English name) It is by far and away the best soap opera to be made in Britain at the present time, it has it all. Drama, humour and humanity. I particularly like the way it handles certain real life situations such as bereavement, in a far more realistic manner than any other soap. Maybe because I live not to far from where it is set and many places I know well are talked about and filmed in means I can relate to it more than one set in the East end of London where every other person is a gangster. It's subtitled into English, so if you can receive it them give it a whirl.
