The second series picks up straight from where the first left of with Ceila by Alan’s bedside following his heart attack. As the two families pull together John (Tony Gardner) continues to pressurise Gillian (Nicola Walker) following a one night stand.

The wonderful cast bring Sally’s extraordinary evocation of family life together with real originality and warmth and I for one can’t wait to see what happens in series two!”
