Delicious .. more please.
12 November 2019 | by delphinozSee all my reviews

London to Newcastle in the 80's! They nailed it well .. seriously there were a lot more 'over the top' characters around back then anyway, including 'larrikin' females. The show is irreverent, brash and hilarious with some depth and empathy in there too. Kudos to the cast, writer and director for a very funny and entertaining season, hope there's more to come.
