Positively intriguing

Georgina covers quite a tricky concept very capably, keeping herself mostly in the background and letting the regrets (or no-regrets) pour forth. There’s plenty for the living to learn and reflect upon to their positive benefit, so things aren’t anything like as morbid as might be expected from the title! At times intriguing (was the prisoner on death row guilty of his alleged crime or not?), always engaging. Paul.

Poignant

Makes you think about your own life and what is important.
Excellent pace and content, not for the emotionally fragile

Pretty good

Most really good but the odd one or two i found slightly boring but i enjoyed it although I'd like to have listened to the death row one but there was not one?? Also... Will there be another season after this as I've finished I'm sure
