Trivia

Genevieve Barr was born deaf and normally uses hearing aids. For her role as Amelia, who has just had a cochlear implant fitted, she was required to remove her hearing aids. She also had to learn sign language which she had never done before because she had always relied on her hearing aids supplemented by lip reading. See more »

Great watch that lost it's way towards the end.
30 September 2020 | by preppycuberSee all my reviews

Great story and script (except for the last episode). Wonderful performances from all actors, especially Genevieve Barr and Douglas Henshall.

I did not quite like the ending. It was like there is a missing episode. Did not seem like an unconventional ending if that is what the creators were aiming for. Liked the series despite that.
