This was originally scheduled to be shown, under the title "Jane Hall's Big Red Bus Ride", beginning in July 2005. However it was postponed for a year and given a more innocuous title, after the 7 July 2005 terrorist bombings in London, one of which killed many people on a red London bus. 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.
