Not in the right mood to watch it, too heavy and rough. Probably should have left it for the weekend rather than during first week back at work and may have judged it better! Maybe need to sleep on it

Thought it was okay ... my money's on that
GP played by Joe Armstrong
, as he appears not to serve any other purpose
could be, or a red herring

it was not bad and not a bore. I would not trust him, he's not likeable and already lying, but may chance over the next episodes.

as above always nice to see Anna F grace our screens , but generally bit underwhelmed by the whole thing. I thought the last episode was rushed and the ending generally poor. Sad really , could have been so much more.

Thought it was thought provoking and very well acted by the two leads, but have to agree the ending seemed rushed and was not great.

Spoilers - Also, I am sorry I just couldn't see Daniel Mays in his "loser" persona pullng Anna Friel in a million years, the bit when he was saying that when she was with her boyfriend she was thinking of him made me almost burst out laughing. I was waiting on her slapping him and walking off, just like she would in real life as guys like him just don't pull women like her without shed loads of cash behind them.

I really liked it, great leading cast and as said above quite through provoking. The whole way we now treat a released prisoner and how the system doesn't exactly lend itself to allowing them to reform themselves.

Agree that it was thought provoking, albeit this assumes that the "system" was portrayed fairly and accurately in the drama.

I did enjoy it, well made, great cast, but I just couldn't believe the ending (relationship).
Great to see Anna back on our screens and Daniel Mays getting some decent lead roles. Both are great actors, actually the whole cast did a great job.

Good job BBC, shame they can't bring us another series of "The Street", I love depressing/moving British drama :thumbsup:
