The most entertaining drama on the BBC in years.
15 October 2007 | by Bill_BonesSee all my reviews

Personally I'd given up on the beeb ever producing a solid working class drama again. So when I glimpsed Drop Dead Gorgeous' first series when it repeated on BBC1 I thought it must be a British film that had previously passed me by but to my surprise it was a series.

And what a series it is. Cracking along at a pace more in line with Channel Four's output, yet grounded with a definite representation of real life, it manages more in its hour slot than some movies. It's so good to see the beeb producing TV that is consistently funny, exciting and moving whilst feeling highly contemporary. Seeing as the people behind the show are credited with the likes of Shameless it's not hard to see where this bold style of drama is coming from.

With only one episode currently remaining it's obvious that, with the right exposure, the first two series of Drop Dead Gorgeous will be regarded as TV gold.
