Addictive when you get going.....
19 March 2013 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Saw this advertised and watched the first episode but didn't really have an opinion either way. Anyway, after another weekend of awful weather and even worse TV, decided to give it a try.... What a surprise!! I watched episode 2 and instantly became hooked. I really enjoyed this show as it deals with mental illness from a different perspective and show the benefits of what counselling can do for some people. There were great story lines coupled with some outstanding performances from all characters, particularly Rae, Kester and Rae's mum. Hoping this has been commissioned for a second season as it's one of the best TV show I've watched in ages!! Season finale absolutely brilliant but make sure you have your tissues at the ready - it's a bit of a tearjerker.
