Being Australian ex-pats we are always on the look out for UK television. Moving on is the finest TV we have watched in years. We thoroughly enjoyed The Street - left wanting more and we just could not wait to get our hands on Moving On series 1 - we were blown away - better than The Street and then when series 2 became available - well - we were not disappointed.
Moving On is the best drama anyone could ever hope to watch. All actors are extremely well cast - all storylines are just like real life - no hype, no over-acting, no excess glamour, just straightforward gritty acting. We have laughed, we have been moved to tears and we have been sat on the edge of our seats. Please, please bring on series 3 - we are sad addicts

I have to agree with "cracker", season 2 is just first class. I say better than season one as i had just finished watching "the street" which was quite outstanding and then along comes "moving on" and i felt let down.I say let down, because i was quite bowled over by the street and was expecting something along similar lines.

In moving on series 2, Mr McGovern has created another gem and each epsisode was just superb. Ten individual standalone episodes make for first rate television. The actors,the acting and story-lines are just the best that British television can produce.

I really feel that Jimmy McGovern is in a class of his own and i can highly recommend anything this guy has written. So please keep them coming !!!

Having enjoyed series one of Moving On I was pleasantly surprised that a second series was commission with twice as many episodes. This bumper crop features 10 stand alone stories very much in the same mould as the first series. Filmed in and around Liverpool, Moving On is the brain child of legendary writer Jimmy McGovern (who devised Cracker and The Street). Here he has delivered a gentle daytime drama that deals with social issues that affects people every day. This series focuses on the topics of alzheimer's disease, adoption, binge drinking, learning difficulties, coming out of prison and coming to terms with middle age. Again each episode is carried marvously by some excellent actors including John Simm, Jenny Agutter, Robert Glenister, Anne Reid, Hugo Speer, Claire Skinner, Roy Marsden and Corin Redgrave (who sadly passed away not long after filming his episode). I actually watched the whole set over two nights, so it just proves what an enjoyable series this is. Well worth the value considering you get twice as much viewing time as the first series.

I had watched Moving On series 1 and really enjoyed it and then bought series 2. I enjoyed most of the episodes but felt a couple were weak and didnt have the same quality as the first series. It will be interesting to see what Series 3 is like.

This is good British down to earth entertainment.

None of the now all too often silly flashing and jumping about displays that the television producers now inflict upon us, spoiling a story.

The only complaint is the 'happy endings' not at all what we expect from producer Jimmy McGovern. Perhaps it is for the American market? Not as good a 'The Street', that Jimmy actually wrote.

Being in Australia we tend to rely on DVD's quite a lot as many quality overseas programs never make it to our TV screens. The commercial networks here seem to feature mainly reality shows and American cops shows. We fare better with the national broadcasters, ABC & SBS, but they can only run a fraction of what's available.
Having bought The Street and really enjoyed every episode, we followed up with this series. While perhaps not quite up to the standard of The Street, it was never the less great viewing. Another quality British drama series I'd happily recommend.

i am sorry, but after buying 2 series, and because of the rubbish on Australian TV, I watched this series, and I am sorry to say, how slow it was, at times boring. I should have realised seeing it was only rated 15. after. watching 'BODIES' which left this series miles behind.

I am really enjoying this series. Looking at lifes difficulties and how we overcome them, the effects that others actions have on us and how communication can be the cause of some of these difficulties. An excellent series that I would highly recommend to all.

When writing and acting is this good it simply cannot fail.The style is a natural follow on from the kitchen sink drama of the sixties but has far more entertainment value whilst still retaining the social and moral messages of the day

Love this anthology series. Each story is well written, and top shelf. Grabs you and holds you in this series as well as in the other two that followed.
