Thoroughly Enjoyable :-))
23 December 2003 | by coolowl-1See all my reviews

12.30pm weedays would not be the same without my "fix" of "Take the High Road". Delighted to see (Michael, Melbourne) that the ABC has bought the whole series. When I enquired they were reluctant to say, so I hope Michael has good info! Totally charming if a tad predictable (what soapy isn't?) the scenery and the soft Highland accents would make this a worthwhile 20 minutes to spend relaxing over lunch.
