Terrific dialogue,believable scenario.
8 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really like this series and was gutted when I missed the first two episodes of series 2.The BBC just has not promoted it. Performances are great all round particularly Lee Boardman (ex-Corrie)as Murray and Kathryn Hunt (also late of Corrie) as the mum. Connor McIntyre (Terry) is just as good an actor as it is possible to be. The story lines are believable and engrossing. There is more excellent dialogue in this series than most other TV dramas and it sounds real not contrived. I hope there is no truth in the rumour that it may be axed. My only gripe is that it has been buried way in the schedules of BBC 3. The powers that be need to move it to BBC 1 or 2 immediately in a post-watershed slot.It appeals to me as an almost 60 year old and my work colleagues who are in their 20's-that speaks volumes about the quality of the writing and acting. If you haven't seen it try to, you will not be sorry.
