The series follows a group of gay men who move to London in 1981. They form a friendship group but the fast developing HIV/AIDS crisis in the United Kingdom impacts their lives. Over five episodes the group are shown living through an entire decade until 1991, as they become determined to live fiercely despite the threat HIV poses to them.Written by
I haven't been able to switch it off, thank goodness for All4! Channel four and RTD, you have truly delivered here with this wonderful five part series. Sexy, funny, moving, sad, it has a bit of everything going on.
Despite all of the glitz and fun, there is a harshness that arrives like a knockout punch, how on Earth can something be so much fun, and then turn so bleak, what an astonishing mix.
I would highly recommend it, great characters, great stories, and the production values are off the scale, the really have managed to bring the 1980's back to life.
Russell T Davies, it breaks my heart that you aren't on hand to save Dr Who right now, but when you're making content like this, you keep at it.
I loved it! 10/10.
