Very good drama
6 November 2005 | by walfordqueenSee all my reviews

This show gives a new meaning to the word sensationalism but it's fabulous. The show is so bad that it's funny at the same time with it's colourful characters. The show is bad but in a good way, it certainly provides me with a form of escapism. Tanya Turner played by Zoe Lucker is a super mad bitch who behaves very desperate housewife-esquire and she's just great. She left the series last time though but let's hope that she'll appear in the next one. I think the show isn't as good without the original cast that made it so great but hopefully they'll be able to create a few more characters who prove to be just as successful.
