Great new Welsh comedy drama
5 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Definitely worth watching! Following the success of Gavin & Stacey, Ruth Jones has brought another great series to the screens. Set in the Welsh valleys with Ruth Jones playing the lead of Stella, a divorced woman in her forties with 3 children. It is a well written, funny and heart warming story that unfolds through the episodes. The character selection and relationships between the characters is excellent. As a Welsh person myself I have really enjoyed the humor and the catchphrases have certainly caught on as a joke between friends. The only thing that could of improved the airing of the series was if it was broadcast on BBC TV as Gavin & Stacey was, therefore, making it more widely available.
