Wow! Series one was good and have just watched 2.1 on DVD. Terrific dialogue, very crisp, and brilliantly acted especially by Suranne and Lesley Sharp. Suranne is awesome. Great cast all round. The dialogue is so much better than the first series. Credit all round. Can't wait for the rest of this series. Spare a thought for Leyland O'Brien as the barman. Delightful vignette! This is a funny actor. Manchestough!! Must be so satisfying for all involved if this standard keeps up. An utter delight, loads of laughs and drama galore. Wish I could be part of this. Thank you you guys. Great Manchester weather when Suranne goes home with the shopping and the brother taps up. Piddling down as usual! Great performances from Miss Sharp, Suranne and Miss Bulmore. Finished watching the full series today. Nothing lightweight about this show. This was full-on material, no punches pulled here. Sprint chase by Suranne was amazing. I don't wish to comment on the content so as not to spoil. Great writing, direction, locations. Tough to improve on this now - please just keep going if possible. Sue and I watched all 8 eps in tandem with "The Slap". Both brilliant. What a night!!
