An amateur musician of stunted emotional growth is reluctant to take care of his young nephew, but as his reluctance grows, his other emotions begin to follow to the fore, meaning he may even become a better, more-rounded person.
Daisy Haggard is tremendous in this very unusual, bittersweet dramedy 'back to life,' talk about a different, unusual premise. How to make a woman convicted of a serious crime funny, sincere and likeable. Haggard manages to do all of those things, Miree has served her time, and wanting to get on with life, and rebuild, the trouble for her is that those around her won't let her get in with it.
I binge watched the whole series in one go, as I was so captivated by the character of Miree and her story. Some terrific characters, my favourite being Miree's wayward mother, beautifully played by Geraldine James.
It's like Fleabag in a sense, more drama then humour, but it is quite captivating.
Thoroughly enjoyed. 8/10
