Great acting all round, glad Keeley was given more to work with in ep5.
Loved the attention to detail, I spent a lot of time reliving the 80’s spotting the casserole bowl my granny had, the kitchen units my mum had, the Austin Maestro the neighbours had, the lucozade with the orange plastic rapper...production team did a superb job.
And..it was heartbreaking, I was 10 mid 80’s and still remember the tombstone ad clearly.
I'm glad to read on here that most of your enjoyed the series, there was lengthy thread on Digital Spy about it too as it was so well received. I too was in tears a couple times too, especially that last episode.
Of course the writing was up there but the acting was done even better. The camaraderie between the actors who played the flatmates looked genuine (and I believe they became good friends in real life afterwards) but the actresses who played Lydia and Colin's mum deserve a special mention for their parts.
