Brilliant, Fun Family Drama !
4 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have followed this from the first episode onwards and it is extremely well produced. It is the kind of light drama that all the family can enjoy and all of the actors bring their own little specialness to the programme.

It is funny, whilst also being touching, and sentimental.

As we follow the dreams to get the rocket into space, we witness the lives of family and friends and how everyone pulls together to make things happen. It makes you think how lucky it is to have a family and to be with people around you that care about you.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series !
