User Reviews

 
A joy. A real pleasure.
1 October 2020 | by sarah_hayward-80837See all my reviews

This 6 part series features 'Love Actually'- esque linkage of the characters. The cast are all incredible, especially Alison Steadman in her performance of a 70 year old woman, full of life - yet lives like a beautiful, colourful bird who's had her wings clipped over time by her larger-than-life husband.

This is a thought-provoking, moving, funny, warming bit of drama and I'm grateful for the recommendation from my mum to watch it.
