Another brilliant BBC production. A clever drama that demonstrates some of the life issues that professional women may deal with: marriage, workaholic habits, client/coworker interactions. Also a sneak peak at what a judge for children cases has to deal with. An opportunity to see EmmaT in a serious role (vs comedy) - great job. Always nice to watch STucci. FWhitehead effectively played a confused young adult. The director did a great job moving this drama along despite no battles or car chases. Spoilers ... thought provoking take aways: controversy over blood transfusions, needy spouses, side effects of being a workaholic, how to deal with clients/coworkers who mix professionalism with intimacy, line between professionalism, friendship and intimacy, the benefits of a long separation before getting a divorce, importance of open honest spousal dialog, emotional discussions without the yelling and insults, professionals making hard decisions by employing a human-touch - not blindly following rules in a book. So many layers to this story. Life is not always a bed of roses.
