Trivia

Alison Mundy's furniture, ornaments, bedsheets and curtains in her home are all mismatched and out-dated because the producers and the actress Lesley Sharp felt that since Alison lived on benefits that all her items would have been bought from second-hand/thrift shops or passed down to her from friends/acquaintances. Her clothes are much in the same manner, if you look carefully her shoes are scuffed, and her tops and jackets are usually threadbare or damaged slightly in some way. See more »

Magnificent
13 September 2005 | by Davo-CCSee all my reviews

This is really outstanding - one could perhaps compare it somewhat to "Medium" however it's darker and perhaps with a sadder tone; very well put together with superb, believable performances that you probably feel more than just see.

The characters reach out to you rather than just appear on the screen; it explores the notion of the "unwanted special gift" well and explore ridicule, disbelief and skepticism without falling for the normal clichés that we so often expect in this kind of feature.

The stories have original structure and the ongoing component is wholly necessary and not trivial; I was impressed.

The worst part is that there are only five episodes – fortunately I feel the ending was wide enough open to easily permit a 2nd season to come along, I really hope they do this as it has at least the promise that Medium has and perhaps a bit more in some ways.

Easily 5 stars out of 5 for me – if you get the chance to see it do so, very rewarding viewing.
