Quotes

Gethin Morris: Now look, no messing about. I don't want to say this at home, because I don't want you flying off. And it's better if I say it out loud, straight off. It's Tasha from work. You know Tasha. Tasha from the bank, and we've been... I'm sorry. I'm really really sorry, but me and Tasha, we're together, like a couple, and that's a fact whether you like it or not. And I've got to point out that I'm being honest. At least I'm not lying. Tasha wants more and I want more. And I can't cheat on you. I can't...

for Who fans...
24 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

The John Scott Martin connection is great. As broadcast on BBC America,this series proves that Russell D. Davies was the perfect person to adapt Doctor Who for a modern (mainstream) audience. In many ways it appears to be his love letter to Wales. For the first time since Blue Scar, a WELSH drama. It depends on stereotypes to be sure, but they are lovingly realized, full of nostalgia, beauty, affection, and great sentimentality. I love it, with a big smile on my face throughout. Brilliant. Without spoilers, the story contains superlative acting, realistic drama, lines and stories much more similar to "Bob and Rose" than "Queer as Folk" but similar in approach. One thing that really appeals is the direct comedy. It's refreshing that this seems to be essentially a comedy, without the constraints of "drama". Davies seems to relish in this liberation, especially the manicness this allows.
