I had seen advertisements on TV for this show, and I thought this was going to be another Only Fools and Horses, Auf Widersein Pet, genre of show, and for the comedy side of it, you can see it. But, the comedic parts are done with such realism and subtle execution it seem's wonderfully natural. The first episode dropped us with a few bombshells, and I'm enticed to come watch next week's show. There is some brilliant acting in this programme by some of UK's better TV actors from varying genre's of strong drama and comedy.
I hope this show continues for a while yet, it has great potential to become a classic.
