Contemporary British drama at its best
28 November 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I LOVE this series. Intelligent script and storyline, great acting, attractive characters - this is contemporary British drama (aiming at the younger crowd but appealing to a wider audience) at its best. Loved 'This Life' (years ago by the same people) but this tops it. A great (but fictional) insight into life at Westminster.

It's a shame series 2 was never made (as it was clearly setup to be), but the poor ratings in addition to Matt Smith becoming the newest Dr Who couldn't have helped.

If you like quality English productions - this is for you. Buy the DVD

  • worth watching twice.




I think I might go and re-watch 'This Life' now.
