I purchased Starlings on the basis that it contained a great cast. I knew absolutely nothing of what it was about, but it was good. So good I sat and watched the first disc all the way through without stopping. Disc two had a problem, but the matter was very swiftly dealt with by the seller, offering either a refund or a replacement DVD box set.
Four generations getting on fabulously under one roof. Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey) and Lesley Sharp (Scott & Bailey) star as Terry and Jan Starling in this uplifting, funny and warm comedy-drama. With their three kids still living at home; Charlie the football-crazy tomboy, Gravy the work-shy reptile enthusiast and Bell the recently separated eldest daughter, the Starlings house is already full to bursting. But now Granddad has been evicted from the old people’s home and there’s a birthing pool in the living room, ready for a brand new arrival.
