good solid performances + great script = fantastic
4 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

MEG TILLY CAN ACT! She's always nailed the ditsy parts but it has been ages since we've seen her skills really stretched into a strong well- rounded role.

As shift matron and a mother of two sons serving overseas, Ms Tilly brings a quiet mature strength that creates depth to her character. There are two incredible scenes in episode 1 where the emotions flutter cross her face and then shine through her eye.

The ensemble cast are together and individually equally strong. Whether it is the gruff factory owner, the girls living in the rooming house or the young scared soldiers --the characters are multi-dimensional and well played.

The production is grounded by a great script that hits all the right notes. Can't wait to see the rest!
