Sorry have no idea, but I enjoyed the last series so am looking forward to this smile

MintChocAddict Tue 02-Jun-15 21:15:31

Me too!

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 02-Jun-15 21:15:48

I think it is yes. I'm sad it's not the old ones

MintChocAddict Tue 02-Jun-15 21:22:00

Ah Scarborough was just mentioned! The old ones were great weren't they? I saw Kay Mellor on This Morning today and apparently Steven Spielberg phoned her to congratulate her on the first series!

zukiecat Tue 02-Jun-15 21:33:22

Great to see Elaine C Smith,

I love her, she's brilliant.

Justmuddlingalong Tue 02-Jun-15 21:49:25

He has Asperger's Fuji. I really dislike Lenny Henry. He's spoiling this one for me. sad

LavenderRain Tue 02-Jun-15 21:59:39

Does anyone know how many weeks it's on for?

FujimotosElixir Tue 02-Jun-15 22:00:10

My sons has that I hate how TV characters often go a bit simp!e jack when its primarily a social awareness on an otherwise normal bright person, he has a sense of humour etc
Ike many ASD sufferers you never see that on tvangry

Kay mellor - writer of Cliche and 'rotund' northern women

FujimotosElixir Wed 03-Jun-15 10:18:57

rotund? didn't see any fatties last night, unless u mean fat friends.

TinyTear Wed 03-Jun-15 15:19:28

i bet Lenny Henry killed or kidnapped the young one and the ex will get the blame...

mumofthemonsters808 Wed 03-Jun-15 15:25:02

I enjoyed it, love Kay Mellors dramas.

The80sweregreat Wed 03-Jun-15 18:36:20

~Didn't watch it all, but caught Anthony Andrews character, he was so good in Brideshead Revisited years ago! the lenny henry character was so annoying going on and on about the lottery - it was at that point I gave up, so will have to watch another time. It seemed a bit Downton Abby too, not that I ever watched that..

FujimotosElixir Wed 03-Jun-15 18:42:40

that irratating woman from waterloo rd !grrr

AnyFucker Wed 03-Jun-15 18:44:14

I found it repetitive and formulaic. Won't be watching any more.

loveliesbleeding1 Thu 04-Jun-15 19:32:02

So annoying, a cliffhanger ruined by showing a preview of next weeks show.angry

AesopsMables Thu 04-Jun-15 20:18:33

Agree with anyfucker had to turn off after 15mins as the acting and script reminded me of a bad am dram play.

AnyFucker Thu 04-Jun-15 21:20:41

yup, totally cliched rubbish

Kay Mellor needs to give it up now

so obviously jumping on the Downton bandwagon....my ds took one look and said "nobody lives like that these days". The characters were so stereotyped it made my teeth grind
