After his wife Rita's fatal car accident, Dave tries to raise his four children, helped by Rita's best friend Sarah. Things get complicated when mourning gives way to romantic feelings, while his kids remain sincere priority.
This is a programme about navigating the trials and traumas of middle-class motherhood, looking at the competitive side and unromantic take on parenting - not the cute and acceptable public face of motherhood.
Anna Maxwell Martin,
In this moving BBC drama, the Hughes family living in the Lake District are like any other family; when their young son Joe is diagnosed as autistic, their lives are changed forever, and the family members must pull together to better learn their son's condition.Written by
It is a brilliant show both season 1 and 2. But I hate the way the parents moan about Joe's autism they talk about him like he has AIDS or something. No wonder he saw it as such a bad thing there are people out there worse then Joe. And I do see a positive outcome for Joe I know we seen the odd autistic behavior here and there and if Joe gets the right treatment by time the third series airs if there will be one his condition mightn't even be copped. I mean who will be the next one to complain about Joe's autism in series 3? The sister, the uncle or the granddad. But his parents should see more of his abilities. The mother was in denial in the first series then in the second his dad was , they didn't accept his condition the father definitely doesn't his mother has came to terms with it. I notice the relationship between Joe and his father has never been the same since they found out I reckon when Joe slapped his father across the face the parents probably thought he would be still like that when he's a teenager The worst he would be is moderately autistic. He's a lovely , cute, happy, little boy and it's a shame his dad thinks it's the end of the world to be honest no parent should look down on their child even if they don't a condition. Parents are out there to give their children good advice they're not there to be cried about unless something genuinely bad happened . Roll on series 3 and I will be looking forward to see it whenever it airs on TV.
