“A moving study of drink, depression and abuse.. a beacon for the genre”

The Guardian

“Immensely moving. It is the story of a lifelong struggle with depression, misdiagnosis and drink dependency, but it is also more than the sum of its parts. It is, at times, both funny and hopeful. There are very few of us who won’t be touched by it.”

Evening Standard

“It was a moving celebration of an enduring love; revealing and responsible television of the highest order.”
