Brilliant show
2 October 2005 | by StockardSee all my reviews

How great is this show! I think ITV are on to a winner with this one, i seriously hope they treat it properly and not like so many of their other dramas which they push around the schedules or axe completely, if they feel it isn't doing well enough ratings wise.

We are on episode 2 in the UK now, i know Australia has seen all the episodes - lucky! I really can't wait to see them all, and i hope we can all look forward to another series because it would be such a shame to stop after just one, and to let such talented actors as Lesley and Andrew go! There seems to be quite a few fans of Alison and Robert's relationship - glad to know i'm not the only one! x
