"The best thing I have ever heard on Radio 4"
This was the deserved winner of the best radio audio drama in 2012 and it is definitely the best radio drama I have ever heard. Katie Hims is an amazing writer and Rosie Cavaliero voices this perfectly. It is an incredibly moving listen that made me laugh and cry and long for more drama of this quality.
"Lived every minute ................."
I discovered this series and was hooked instantly. You become embroiled with the characters and they make you smile, sigh and I found myself crying unashamedly at the end. Fantastic drama I would recommend highly.
