Reviews for series 2:
"If you think of radio in colour this comedy comes in shades of sepia and charcoal with the occasional bright patch of green. It's also pretty addictive, a floaty tale of people looking for new starts, picking themselves up from failed ones, seeking change and consolation." -- Radio Highlights, The Telegraph
Reviews for series 1:
