Great Series
14 February 2020 | by GB65See all my reviews

I thought series one was a little slow but I suppose that was whilst they built up the characters. It's great to see a network give writers a chance and allow programmes to grow and in series two this one certainly did. Quality writing and good performances from all. True to life, believable stories and some wonderful memories. Looking forward to series three already.
