I cant believe I have only just discovered this fantastic program!!!
Each episode is dedicated to one of the main women and the lenghts they
have to go to, to get by without their husbands. Im not usually a fan
of dramas with ensemble casts as they don't tend to take enough time to
fully develop each character, but this one was different. Each of the
main characters is fully formed with their own individual stories, not
of which were clichéd. Every episode is well written and acted and
there was even some laughs in there too! Pippa Haywood really steals
the show as Harriet, a shy mother whose son is behind bars- every
single scene with her in was just heartbreaking. I just wanted to give
her a hug and tell her it would all be OK. I loved the way the main
women supported each other through the ordeal of having a loved one in
prison. If you like a good drama, then you'll love this! I hope the
second series is as great!
