5th series
28 December 2006 | by garywebbuk2003See all my reviews

i have seen this series from the first episode to the last of series 5. It was one of my favourite television programmes on TV and really hope that it comes back or makes an appearance on UKTV Drama on Sky. Unfortunately this is when it finished. i thought it was a well written drama series. i have the box sets of series 1 -4 but i haven't seen anything coming out about the 5th series. if there is anyone out there who knows please please let me know here. My favourite actress in this was Jo McInnes. I think she is a great actress. She should have been in more dramas but i haven't seen or heard much that she is in. There wasn't much football (soccer) shown being played in it but the dramatic story lines made up for it.
