Great Afternoon Drama
26 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a great one off drama. Sarah gets given her Grandad's most prized item - his allotment shed.

I watched this as it was set in and around Birmingham and showed lots of new and familiar landmarks. But it was actually really warming and thoughtful.

All about taking time out from the rush of everyday life. Sarah is caught between the fast paced world of her middle class graduate boyfriend and the world of the older generation who spend their days drinking tea and tending their plants at the PEBBLE MILL ALLOTMENTS. It harks back to the days off gentler life in Birmingham which many people across the UK can relate too.

This also seems to be a nod to the BBC themselves as their own BBC Pebble Mill is now BBC Birmingham. And the world has changed and moved on to a new pace.

More like this please.
