Personally I think the two series' of Single Handed have been the best series on TV in a long while. The stories are gripping and together with the stunning scenery of rural Ireland, and of course Owen McDonnell's brooding good looks, well, what more could you ask for. Now that series two has ended Thursday nights just won't be the same, I ordered this series 1 DVD straight away due to withdrawal symptoms and I watched the lot in one day as was off work ill, and it cheered me up no end. I can only hope that we see another series as this quality TV does not come around too often. The acting and direction is superb, you really believe in the characters, and the writing is just brilliant. All episodes are two hours or so in duration, shown in two 1 hour episodes on TV, and they are so compelling that you can't wait for the next episode. Jack Driscoll is such a sexy character and Owen McDonnell's portrayal of Jack is perfect - please, please bring him back.
