I agree with the previous reviewers, This is one of the best pieces of drama I have seen in ages. Suranne Jones was superb. She must have gone through agony to keep that tortured expression all the way through the three parter, but when she smiled as her sister hugged her at the end of the final episode, I couldn't see the screen for tears, and me at 56! What a softie.
Being born, bred and buttered in Halifax, it was good to hear of real villages from the area rather than made-up ones like "Melchester" and the like. By the way, Suranne Jones's Halifax accent was perfect.
I know the author Sally Wainwright personally, and appreciated her calling one of the families "Belcolme" who were friends of the Lister family of Shibden Hall, Halifax where I work.
I've just treated myself to the DVD, so I'll be watching it for many years to come. Tony Sharpe, Shibden Hall, Halifax.
