Wooden Actress
31 March 2015 | by marksmith-61543See all my reviews

A fairly well written piece / series, but strongly spoilt by the actress who plays Janice as she was totally wooden. Seriously beggars belief there's not someone far, far better in the north of England. How far did they cast the casting net for this particular role? Really loved Michelle Keegan who is absolutely outstanding and totally contrasts to the Janice character. I suspect there'll be a second series & the first is certainly worth watching apart from the odd & somewhat strange choice of lower grade wooden actor or two. To be honest, looking at the cast list there appears to be a great many 'actors' who have appeared in other Manchester based dramas such as, Shameless, Clocking Off, Happy Valley, and the like. Surely, this isn't repetitive lazy casting. Just dragging in the same old faces without trawling the vast pot of talent that exists in the north west / Yorkshire?
