I tried to like this, but in the end I had to give up. It was all too dour and it was too gruelling to try to make out what everyone was saying (strong Scottish accents). It was also too wearing hearing all the endless swearing. (Often these were the clearest words spoken.) This language may be realistic, but this is entertainment, not a documentary. The story, after all, is not very believable.
I saw this on BBC Prime, the endless-repeats-from-a-bin-of-old-tapes channel the BBC half-heartedly throws together for people outside the UK. This was one of the few programmes not from the BBC's own dusty archives. It's a pity it was not better, since the channel is very short of material.
