One of the finest TV dramas of 2004. Beautifully written by William Ivory, great acting by Paul Nicholls, the outstanding Liz White and company. Using a similar idea to Clocking Off, in which several characters' personal stories are played out over the weeks, this Nottingham-based drama is bound to get the odd Bafta at the next ceremony. The finale may have pushed every emotional button, even down to featuring a box of cute puppies, but despite the obvious manipulation of the viewer, it was heartbreaking. A second series can't come soon enough. If you haven't seen it, watching it on DVD may be a benefit as the various threads are tied together by episode six. A must see. 10/10
