This series slipped under the radar, which I think is a real shame. It was by no means perfect, but it was mostly well written and directed, and the acting was pretty solid. What made it special was Sally Phillips. She was superb, showing off the full range of her considerable acting talents. She could be touching, insecure, feisty - and hilarious: the first episode in particular, has a treasurable scene where she interviews a prominent (and none-too-impressed) feminist for a feature called "What's in my fridge" or something similar. When the subject testily enquires whose brilliant idea this was, Sally Phillips's reaction is priceless, even though she just says one word: "Guilty!" She is a huge comic talent, and I really hope we see more of her on big and small screens.
