Richard Armitage, a quality ensemble cast , and Kay Mellor make for and interesting series.
13 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I would never have purchased this if not for the presence of Richard Armitage in the cast - but I quite enjoyed it and his story line in particular because it was a complex role.

It was another excellent performance by Richard, playing a completely different character to his character in North and South and there is a quality ensemble cast which makes it worthwhile even if the material may not particularly appeal to you.

For anyone interested in Richard Armitage's work, it is well worth it in my opinion. It's not for you however if frank sexual discussion and nudity will trouble you. The fact that it has a multi genre description is fairly accurate - it is a slice of (not quite average) life with its comedy, drama and romance.
