Dawn French's characters usually irritate me to no end and this is no exception. I did watch the whole series on PBS Passport and I will say, it does get better. Especially one delightful relationship in particular, but no spoilers. Worth the watch for the other characters, but not for DF's PITA Maggie, IMNSHO. As a dramedy, it's a bit of a dud due to that.
I think we're getting these older, lesser-known series because of Covid and the lack of new shows to put on. Hopefully, they're getting them for a low price!
