Written by Kathy Burke the premis of this shown is the inner thoughts and tribulations of a young teenage girl. With her best friend she kicks about the town idolising rock bands and chatting. The cameo by Kathy Burke as the nun is hilarious and the dialogue between the girls genius. Another gold star for the little cracker series on sky 1. Brilliant stuffWritten by
This low budget, low concept TV series is a fantastic piece of comedy drama whose simple surface conceals some very subtle and truthful observations about adolescence, about girls, about the city, about friendship. It also has two very funny nuns and a rare appearance from the genius that is Gerry Sadowitcz.
But at its centre is Kath, the 14 year old self of actor/director/writer Kathy Burke as a fish out of water, pacing interminably around working class Islington circa 1979. Expertly portrayed, she has both big doubts and big dreams, is both self-effacing and brave. It is also frequently laugh-out-loud funny while always feeling honest at the same time.
There should be more episodes. It should be seen by more people. It deserves an award.
