Marvelous show. Both the storylines and the characters are addictive. Even more so as they are based on the lives of real people. Humor and pathos in the face of dire poverty, ignorance, and rapid change of society. Highly recommend. The Brits are so good at creating and producing shows like this.

Love. Love. Love. Wish I could watch an episode of this every night. Probably more of a woman's series - might be too graphic for some men and kids - and even some women. Great story lines, well written, fantastic acting!
