Absolutely brilliant.....!!!
8 October 2002 | by (Northampton, UK) – See all my reviews

Extremely well-produced drama, showing the problems that many single-mums have in present-day Britain with bringing up their kids. So well made that I felt I was watching a real-life documentary, rather than a TV drama. Tamzin Outhwaite gives an excellent performance as a mum who is trying desperately to make sure that her son gets a good education, and fighting his street-wise friends who have other ideas.......

Tamzin's departure from Eastenders was a sad occasion for us "Mel" fans, but her performances in "Out of Control" (and before that in "Red Cap") show that she is a brilliant young actress who will go from strength to strength.....
