Having spent a lifetime being spoon-fed with BBC programmes, I took a chance on something that was commissioned for/ on behalf of sky viewers. Not wanting to seem like a complete snob, I took a chance on purchasing this ten-parter. What happened next was something I haven't done for a long time. I curled up my toes in our wool rug sat back and forgot about all my worries as I became glued to an extraordinarily endearing comedy with touchy feely moments, and bursts of hilarity.
My wife, who is not a native of these soils nor language, was mesmerised by everything going on. Not a pregnant pause or a distraction in this nicely flowing insight into the lives of very believable characters who all interact spendidly together. Well scripted, nice dialogues, and above all the feeling that you are in there with them. Haven't felt that about BBC tv since the 1980s.
