This is a programme about navigating the trials and traumas of middle-class motherhood, looking at the competitive side and unromantic take on parenting - not the cute and acceptable public face of motherhood.
Anna Maxwell Martin,
I found it hard to believe that actors like the incredible Sidse Babett Knudsen (uniquely talented star of the Danish series, "Borgen"); Sarah Lancashire (brilliant in "Last Tango in Halifax" and "Happy Valley"); Joanna Scanlan, who totally carried "No Offence"; and Eiry Thomas, impressive in her role in "Keeping Faith") could actually be part of such a bad production. The writing is ATROCIOUS; the plot so thin, the supporting cast just ... well ... "unglued" is the only thing I can think of.
This is, all round, an absolute fail. I still can't get over these four brilliant women being part of something so bad; they're SO good, but even they couldn't carry this incredibly limp and scattered script. It SHOULD have been good, but it fails. I'm really, really disappointed. What a waste of incredible talent....
