5.0 out of 5 stars Quentin at her best 12 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
Good quality cast base, with truthful acting and storyline. Caroline is amazing as ever and on top of her game. There is such a diverse range of thematic issues explored that there is something for everyone, and no its not all about sex picky! Amazing buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny rom-com with a sad twist 20 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In this, series two and three, we catch up with the central character (played by Caroline Quentin) as she makes a new life after her divorce from cheating husband (Alexander Armstrong). Will she find new love? Will she have him back? Will the kids go off the rails? Has her father got dementia or is he just forgetful? This delightful series, with lots of well-developed minor characters, is such a pleasant change from all the endless murders that pass for TV drama these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good series 10 Oct 2010
By Doc
Format:DVD
Caroline Quentin is terrific in this series. The series shows how a family breakup really does change the dynamics within a family and how a stay-at-home mom can become the real bread winner for the family. It's balanced with some funny moments and sad moments and I truly recommend this series to my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Begins 4 Oct 2010
By Clare
Format:DVD
Halfway through watching Series 2, having just finished Series 1! An excellent, very real to life series. Maggie struggles with her teenage family, her dominant mother, her forgetful father, her husband - who she still has feelings for, her new boyfriend - the school teacher, her job, plus everything else life throws at her.

The actors play the characters superbly, with a well written script. Brought back memories of watching it on tv the first time around.
