This series is like nothing else on television. It can't be compared to the L-Word because, although both are lesbian dramas, they are so very different. I personally find the characters in Lip Service much more relatable and the storylines more gritty and true-to-life. This series is extremely different from the first. The focus is on different characters, some of which didn't appear in the first series, others of which only had minor roles. Sam is one of the main characters in this series and she is a terrific actress. I really liked the addition of Lexy, who fits in perfectly, and as usual, Tess is a joy to watch and empathise with. I was shocked at some of the storylines and admired the risks taken by the show's producers. I agree with the other reviewer that the series is too short and will be sadly missed on Friday nights while I await series 3. Long live Lip Service!

I actually prefer S2 to S1 because I feel that the writing of S2 was much more challenging, complex and sensitive, not to mention, mixing it all up with humour, too! Because the character development was structured so well for each character, rich with fantastic dialogue & multi-dimensional personality traits, the actors automatically stepped up to the plate and performed ever so exceptionally especially how those difficult non-verbals spoke volumes, giving us viewers a front-row seat of how these characters' innermost emotions were played out. The performances were so real that I forgot that these characters were fictional. I found myself totally immersed and invested in these characters because I could relate to their characteristics, attitudes, behaviour under certain given circumstances in their lives because that's life. I'm sure we've all come across these characters through our friends, family members, neighbours, colleagues or even ourselves. It's life as we know it. It's not pretty. It's not always fine and dandy. It's a journey. It's a process. And Harriet Braun managed to give these characters such realistic depth and breathe life to them that the actors inherently became the characters they played.

I cannot wait for BBC3 to re-commission a 3rd series. It'd be criminal if it's not. I, for one, would be very upset and disappointed with BBC if there wouldn't be another series. I really want to see how these characters evolve in the next steps of their personal and professional lives.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Just finished watching the season finale on BBC3 now and I have to write a review on this brilliant series. The very first episode I watched was the shocking episode 2 of this series, and I ended up watching the entire series 1 in a day and fell in love with it. Although, I don't agree with some of the things that have happened in this series I do believe that it has made it dramatic and the storylines have been brilliant. I suppose if a TV show has almost everyone talking about it - it's a good thing right? I'm really hoping that there's going to be a Season 3 because this show has so much more potential for many more brilliant seasons, one criticism is there isn't enough episodes per season!! The new addition of Lexy and making Sadie a more prominent character have been amazing decisions, both are wonderful actresses and really bring more character to the show especially Sadie I think she's brilliant. Will definitely buy and cannot wait for the next series, please let there be one!

I was very much looking forward to the new series after following the first series enthusiastically, and had missed its scheduled showings on TV. Series 1 ended with suspense when central protagonist, Frankie found her birth mother after a traumatic search. Series 2 re-introduces the well-loved characters of Series 1. I was totally unprepared mentally and emotionally for the shock-wave which follows, as the plot unravels! Series 2 develops the themes of love and friendship, success and disappointment, betrayal and loss, poignantly explored in Series 1, its characters continuing to evoke compassion and empathy. I think both series are probably most suited to younger lesbians and women interested in exploring their sexual identity. For me at the age of 66, it was nonetheless refreshingly life-affirming and enjoyable. Bring on Series 3!

A great series with great actresses and actors, unfortunately there was no recommission for a 3rd season. This Febuary we went to Glasgow for 1 week to see Heather Peace live in concert. We wouldn't have done this, if it hasn't been for this series. ;-)

Lip Service is the best series I have ever seen on TV.. It is brilliantly acted and written, and encompasses real life like stories. Sam who was brought in in the second part of part I has remained central to it all, very cleverly. In the first series she was happy but in the second series she was so unhappy. These so different parts must have been very difficult to act, but she did it perfectly.
The intenseness of it had me sitting on the edge of my seat many times, and holding my breath. Tess is kept as the amusing character, and the emergence of Lexy is very cleverly done.
I have loved every single episode and really think there should be a third series, but for more than just six weeks.

I waited for ages to buy this because I missed it all on the telly and I knew they weren't making a third series. However this is the only thing that should put you off buying it because it is an excellent second series, managing to keep up the standard set by the first, rather impressively considering a couple of the main characters are not as prominent or there at all, you care about the new characters just as much by the end.
But again, a tease, as there is no more!!! Still well worth watching, great storylines, great writing and excellent performances. Love it!!

The love triangle was, for me, the great strength of the first series so I was sorry to see it end so shockingly early in Series 2: I guess that this rather coloured my perceptions of the show thereafter. More objectively, I feel that this second series had too many `here today, gone tomorrow' incidental characters who added little or nothing to the intrigue of the relationships that are central to the drama: what were the footballers about in the first episode ? And Hugh, all the way through.

That said, there's still much to enjoy in this second run and the usual suspects give equally strong performances. Anna Skellern is similarly good as newcomer Lexy, and the character - a doctor in A&E - provides a nice balance to the others. I've never been a member of Team Sam, but her role is developed still further as she goes through every emotion from love in the course of this series. How could anyone not like Tess ? She is as wonderful as before, from the inner steel in her final put-down of Nasty Nora to the touching vulnerability of her return to an empty house...all within five minutes.

So, while I don't share the opinion of some reviewers that Series 2 is better than its predecessor, I definitely feel that it's worth seeing. Sadly, I don't believe that we will ever see a Series 3 - but I hope that I'm wrong.

simply fab, the chemistry, characters and sex yes sex is great, if i'd wanted onging looks and kisses i'd have bought the other lesbian trash they sell as "beautiful". Its a great alternative to the l word though very different. Though that bloody bloke in it tess's friend from the theatre was a waste of air time, wht did that add!! i think this is done though i see no series 3, pity hope i'm wrong
