"theres a bit of trouble up at mill!"
10 October 2002 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

this is an excellant drama serial which is complemented by a very good cast, script, direction and high production values. indeed, this show makes a welcome change as oppossed to bland detective and puerile hospital fodder which constantly plagues our brit telly screens. special credit must be given to me brother brian and yours truly who appear uncredited as factory workers!
