Found a Diamond by a fluke
10 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The kid Dan, cracked me up when he says to Mrs. Sharma "Then, lets both run away to India"... HAHA Jokes aside, but its wonderful drama and i came by a fluke trying to search parts of old series. It might be clichéd to some people but I think the drama is enjoyable, I am not from Wales or from UK but I can imagine the old town or county, thought process of people, herd mentality etc... This fits right in with the era of 1960, not xenophobia as such but unwilling to accept something thats not local etc.... but Bhaskar and Ayesha plays pretty good role... Season 2 is really a cracker, as the character builds up from season - 1. I highly recommend, this as a perfect family drama with no bad language, swearing or odd scenes, a nice family drama to watch with kids.

Great job, continue the series if you can...
