The character name George Stevenson is an in-joke: George Stephenson (1781-1848) was a 19th Century British railway engineer who designed a famous and historically important steam locomotive named Rocket. See more »
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 !
