lazylistener&fictionfan ,

Loved rose!

So nice to hear a Yorkshire accent especially when living abroad. The rose character is a strong female with a great attitude. I’m really loving this podcast!

GalCapone ,

Talk about tell, don’t show.

I appreciate that it’s an audio drama, but the dialogue is written like an 50s detective novel, leaving noting up to the imagination. The even use the word nemesis! Like WTF.

gaelicfonz ,

Wow

A story of Interest shock disgust But more so a story of true Grit and Neville and family paid the toll on the affair for the listeners pleasure. Leaves a bitter taste, was justice really served ?
