Well put, Annie!

Yes, I agree, watching series 3 cold might make things tricky, especially as it wasn't set in her home like the other 2, and you didn't get the back story so much in series 3.

Watching series 2 cold was ok, though.

I'll now have to be careful what I say, because after watching episode 1 of this latest series, I binge-watched the other 5 episodes on iPlayer, as the Beeb has made all episodes available now!

I don't want to give any spoilers!


(I expect I'll watch them again week by week, though!)

I watched them all too. Unfortunately that's it. No more seasons are planned. I hope they do a Christmas special though.

Yes, you're right; you have to get to know them, plus you have to understand what's going on during the pauses and silences. If you just look at the 'action', you miss a lot of the nuances.

Re: Mum

I too have watched series 1 and 2 on catch up and last night watched all of series 3, I’ll say nothing but I did enjoy it and sad there will be no more. Being a crisp eater I loved the way they all ate crisps, not often you see that on TV ��

Yes, Kelly and Jason seemed to be constantly eating! I'm surprised they're so thin!
