Sex & Nudity

  • A subtle suggestion that a male/female couple damaged a bed during sex. (This was very subtle, and after the fact so you know that's not how the bed was damaged.)
  • Infrequent male topless nudity, in one episode Jimmy is sitting in an old bath with his nipples exposed, other episodes footballers are seen removing tops and their torsos are fully visible.

Violence & Gore

  • Football roughness on the playing field, and occasional fisticuffs.


  • Practically non-existent. (Very refreshing to watch something that isn't a constant stream of unnecessary f-words.)
  • In episode 2, the name of Jesus is used as a swear word and Christ is used as a swear word twice in the episode.
  • It is quite shocking, this is a Julian Fellowes show, the creator of Downton Abbey and they use the name of Christ in vain in this show more than once which they never did in Downtown Abbey. Very Disappointing.
  • In episode 5 they use the name of Christ twice as a swear word.
  • In episode 6 Jesus is used as a swear word twice by a main character and Christ is used as a swear word once.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
