Loved every minute of this superbly acted series. Sheridan Smith's addictive character was convincing and extremely well portrayed. Would watch it again.
Very good :)
I really enjoyed the show. Too bad there is only one season. I love the accent and it’s very fast paced. Interesting storyline and the characters are very likable. I would love to see more.
