A Rare Well Written Witty Drama
7 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the trailer for this, I was intrigued but I didn't watch the original episode. Instead I saw it a few days later when it was repeated and I'm so glad I did. This drama manages to be both witty and insightful which is a rare thing in television today. It focuses on a young teenage girl who after spending two months in a mental hospital is released into the world again, not only does it shows the girls sarcastic and witty nature as a defence but it manages to show her vulnerable and sensitive side too making it a really great watch. Now I watch this every week and I'd advise anyone else to do the same, you won't be disappointed!!
