In Pontyberry, the fictional town in the South Wales Valleys, a 40-something divorcée is trying to juggle the demands of family life. With her son Luke in prison, her teenage daughter Emma who refuses to do what’s best for her and her little boy Ben who still needs his mam, Stella doesn’t want for distractions. But when Emma reveals some shocking news, Stella’s world gets tipped upside down. She’s not on her own though because Stella’s world is peopled with a selection of odd-ball friends and relatives always ready to help her out, from ex-husband Karl and his vacuous girlfriend Nadine, to love-lorn lollipop man Alan and her best friend Paula – the functioning alcoholic undertaker. And then of course, there’s the gorgeous Sean …

5.0 out of 5 stars STELLA DVD 17 July 2012
By Stella
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this box set DVD! I didn't see it when it was on TV as I don't have Sky TV so was delighted when I saw it in the box set to buy. I think it ws very good value for money & I had many an hours happy watching with it. I will definitely be watching it over & over again. The humour is brilliant but with some wee sad bits too. I found it to be true to life. The character of Stella cannot be even remotely compared to Nessa in Gavin & Stacey but however, no less enjoyable. Definitely recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect gift. 20 April 2012

Stella [DVD] I actually bought this DVD for a friend who hadn't seen the series on T.V. She said it kept her amused for hours. Funny, serious, and at times sad and insists I remind her when the next series is about to start. I personally am a Ruth Jones fan and love to watch anything she co- writes, she never disappoints.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing series! 30 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Stella! I think that Ruth Jones is awesome and a very clever writer. It has great story lines and the characters are brilliant. It is nothing like Gavin and Stacey but just as excellent if not more. Would definitely recommend - I can't wait for the second series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 17 April 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

If you saw the series on Sky you will completely enjoy watching this DVD. If you didn't see the series this DVD will give you the opportunity to be entertain for hours by watching this engaging and very funny series of Stella conceived and starring Ruth Jones. The casting is excellent and the writing and production are stunning. Money well spent!

5.0 out of 5 stars I fell in love with Stella. 18 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A bundle of really wonderful stories and characters. I think it's a huge tribute to the writing and acting to say that I became so absorbed in what I was watching that I fell hopelessly in love with Stella and had to keep forcibly reminding myself that she isn't real, just a fictional character in a romantic-comedy-drama. I know that's daft, and I have to laugh at myself for it, but I haven't enjoyed anything as much for a long time. I like Ruth Jones anyway after 'Gavin and Stacey' which I enjoyed enough to buy the boxed set, but I like this much more. I pre-ordered Series 2 the instant I found out it was going to be available. So can I say more? Actually yes, I can......"Stella, will you marry me twice?" - (Twice in case one doesn't take).

I loved this. Gavin and Stacy meets the real world. Ruth Jones is superb, as usual, and the script is laugh out loud funny.
