I'm so glad I found this one!
18 May 2020 | by teaguecaroleSee all my reviews

I was running out of good shows to watch during this quarintine of 2020 and stumbled on this on Amazon. I have watched and liked several British shows and to me this is probably my favorite. This is not a soap opera as we think of them in the US. It's a very good series about people who seem real and worth getting to know.

I really enjoy the stories and the characters. The only complaint I have is that the same actors don't play the characters for the whole series. It's disappointing not to see the same people that were the main characters in the first year after you've watched it for awhile. In the case of some, it's just like they ":disappear" and then maybe someone else plays the character, or not.

All in all though, I'd say it's a very good show and worth the time to watch.
