| Worth the time
Nearly gave up on this one early on-- so glad I stuck with it. As the story unfolds the characters' motivations become more clear and, just as in real life, they become so much more human as we begin to see where they're coming from. Funny, biting dark humour helps keep it from becoming a soap opera. Definitely not for everyone but in the course of its three hour run it took me from a point of wondering why I was watching to being a fan of Daisy Haggard's talents. Give it a look if you're a fan of dark British comedy.
