I do hope there is another series - this has a bit of everything, drama, humour, relationship issues, laughter and tears and running through it really good stories of people you can believe in and identify with. They have real faces and real bodies, not Hollywood perfect so it is all the more believable. This certainly beats reality television.

There is something uplifting about a programme with strong bonds of friendship surviving all sorts of circumstances.
