This is a very delightful series.After going thru the series twice, I prefer Eve Matheson's portrayal of Zoe over Leslie Dunlop. Leslie was very lovely and a fine actress,but I thought her character was a little too snippy and combative with Alec.Perhaps the writers felt that was necessary as the couple married and had a child. Eve's portrayal was lighter and sweeter and she and Alec always had some nice laughs. Both ladies were very attractive and played their part well.The other supports were excellent.The only character I couldn't take was Rosie, the sectary in the last season.Her accent and acting were too over the top.Anton Rogers was excellent.A wonderful show.Hope it goes to DVD shoo
