in a word? brilliant
14 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really didn't know what to expect when i tuned in to watch tracie's story, I openly bat for the rainbow team and believe to my core there is a place for all in this world, gay straight black white pink blue - all of the above, so long as its not illegal and doesn't have a detrimental effect on others then people should be able live their lives how they wish. In saying all that i have had very little experience or contact with transvestites, I've seen them out in clubs, and admit i have had the odd discreet giggle over shoe sizes and bad wigs, i suppose its difficult to understand what we don't know but I have to say this drama has been a revelation to me, it has opened my eyes to the person behind the make up, the bravery it must take to just be yourself, something we all take for granted. It has also shown the darker side of their lives, I've known for years that "straight" men will go to gay clubs and pick up a woman, I've never given much thought to their other lives, with wives and kids til now, the lies and heartache that goes with it. anyway, put aside your prejudices if you have any and immerse yourself in a seedy messed up world for an hour. brilliant writing and performances from everyone

Sean bean and Stephen Graham you should be very very proud of yourselves. excellent.
