  1. Was it even a cliffhanger? Was refreshing to have a new ITV series which wasn’t the usual crime drama but this ultimately was a wasted six hours in which not only were questioned never really answered, they weren’t even asked in the first place. The only thing it had going for it was Joanna Lumley.

    Keeley Hawes clearly used up all her acting skills in the It’s a Sin finale as she just didn’t need them here.

  2. If anyone is considering watching this I’d recommend you wait 2 years. The premise is quite good but the writing is quite poor. It doesn’t know if it wants to be a comedy or a drama and fails miserably in both. Also the season finale ends in a cliffhanger and season 2 is not planned to go into production til 2022. I felt really let down.

  3. Watched this. Ultimately it will be for others to watch and decide, but for me – Like Keely – the premise was good – started well – but never took off, and I felt let down with the ending.
