Sally Wainwright, the writer/creator, based this series upon her own experiences when she was sharing a house with four other people and working as a bus driver herself. Richard and Robert are based on real life characters, and Robert is based on the man she ended up falling in love with and marrying in real life. See more »
I think the name of this show nearly meant i nearly didn't watch this show, but i'm glad i did! The actors are really good, especially Sarah Smart who is very believable in her portrayal of Jane as a shy and slightly geeky girl. Following her change of lifestyle to become a London bus drive is actually quite funny and dramatic which i think is unusual! Another aspect of this show which i liked was the use of her workplace as well as her home in the storyline. However I think it moved too fast, which means it probably won't have a second season as I'm not sure what story lines could be followed after having Jane marry both Robert and Richard by mistake in the final episode.
