Though not the most original of concepts, I really enjoyed Monday Monday. If you are looking for challenging drama, or laugh out loud comedy, you will probably be disappointed. If you are looking for easy-watching comedy drama with likable characters and some funny story lines, then Monday Monday is for you.
Unfortunately, the low viewing figures of under three million for an ITV1 show - that spent two years on the shelf before being aired - indicates it will be highly unlikely to get a second series.
Fay Ripley, Morven Christie and Holly Aird can all be pleased with their performances. I have seen Holly in a fair few ITV drama's over recent years such as Torn, and I rate her very highly as an actress. It's these qualities from someone like her that helped to hold Monday Monday together.
