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 »

Ok, I'll admit it started getting a little dragged out in the end of Season 1, but I still wanted more!! Wish it hadn't ended. :(
