Very good. The surprisingly touching relationship between the two daughters is central to its success. Excellent cast. Great writing.

Nothing as bad as the egregiously classist Motherland, but the depiction of the working class side of the family felt slightly mean-spirited. There were some alright jokes here and there, but I'm pretty indifferent to it overall.

It doesn't have you rolling around the floor laughing but it's got a certain charm to it that keeps you watching. Lovely to see four female leads in a sitcom too and nice to see it moved to primetime BBC One.

Really pleased to hear this has been recommissioned, more of Holly Walsh's writing is always a good thing.
