Best T.V. Drama in years
29 December 2013 | by (Lancashire) – See all my reviews

Sally Wainwright does it again!! What a brilliant writer she is. Just look at the stuff she has written... all of it so clever, so entertaining, so observant. The characters, their awkward situations, their messed up lives are all so believable. I understand why some say the story-lines appear farcical but that is part of the fun, watching people of vastly different backgrounds interact and deal with their often self induced problems. Didn't have the time to watch the original transmission, so bought the DVD of series one and so glad I did. I watched all six episodes over two nights followed by series two over the next two nights.What a fabulous cast, fabulous direction and beautiful photography....what more can I say? What I will add, cautiously, is that series three may(?) be a series to many. I sincerely hope not! Thanks Sally, you are a genius.
