Excellent Series that brought reality home to the UK TV screens! This needs a DVD release!
20 November 2018 | by MovieMattersSee all my reviews

The late Ralph Bates, a charming and highly talented actor was paired with the lovely Susannah York in this drama showing how people face up to divorce. It really brought the truth home to the UK TV viewers and, if they didn't know what life after divorce was like, this dynamic series explained it. Full of interesting, vibrant characters and first rate acting too. Where's the DVD? Hopefully Network will do it sometime, if not then ITV themselves (who own it).
