A Westonian loves this!
on 21 December 2011
As someone who grew up in Weston Super Mare and is passionate about the town,but like the main character is now living in London, I was really looking forward to this series - and I was not disappointed although it has made me feel very homesick. Weston is a great place, with a beautiful promande, "the worlds best Pier", and a great beach - even if the sea is full of mud. This series show cases the recently modelled sea front beautifully and shows the town in it all its glorious glory. (Not that I'm bias!)
Both the story and characters are engaging and the humour is gentle and pitched just right to sum up West Country life. The writing is suberb and the characters are very well rounded. This has cleary been written by folk who love Weston and understand how people in Somerset think. Theres nothing not to like here. If you want laugh out loud riotous jokes look else where but if you love simple stories of every day folk just trying to get by you'll love this.
Just one question - why do we have to wait until November next year for a dvd release - that seems crazy. Come on Sky up the release date and give us all a treat. Laters!
