That was an amazing piece of television - really bought home a lot of realities for women pre birth control and safe, legal terminations.. Very graphic, but it needed to be.

Once again, brilliant show - very happy it's being signed up for season 3!

And excellent news dadathome - I can watch it all over again!

I only recently started watching the second series, but its fast becoming my favourite show.  Loved episode 6, the storylines are so well done.

This second series has been brilliant. Episode 6 was sad, in many ways (as was #5, wow!). Looking forward to episode 7. Such a shame it finishes at episode 8 sad.gif

I'm really growing to love Jane Sutton (I think that's her name).

Anyone else watch every episode hoping that Sister Monica Joan doesn't get struck down with illness? I'm gonna be bawling when/if ever she dies sad.gif I adore that old woman.

I have the books on my iPad, I really need to read them.

Stupid stupid show, why does it only have 8 episodes, it's not long enough, I could watch it over and over again. Love Chummy and Sister Monica Joan  biggrin.gif and I'm dying to see if anything happens between  Sister Bernadette and the Dr  wink.gif

Spoilers darling, spoilers!!

Damnit, if you're going to talk about UK paced stuff put a warning up.

I was reading who Weekly the other week and it said it started on Feb 21...but my DVR didn't pick it up so I was worried...but it was an error as the ABC ad has it starting in March so I won't miss it, yay!
I must try the books one day, are they any good?

Watched the latest one last night and cried and cried sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif  Such a brilliant show - the story lines are so well done and you fall in love with each character so easily.  Not many shows can make you do that.  

I am missing Chummy and very glad she is back next week.

Just watched episode 7.... I am such a romantic sop! The BBC does this sort of slow burn romance so well...

Last episode next Monday - cannot wait!!

Oh me too! Just finished it about 10mins ago. Another great ep! Made me laugh quite a bit!

I know, I so want that to be a happy ending.  And with Chummy's storyline too.  (don't want to say too much)

I've been scouting around a few UK TV sites, can't resist spoilers... Suffice to say, cannot WAIT for Monday night - DH laughs at me as I tuck myself into bed with the laptop each Monday night - he can't stand it, but I love it!

Season finale... too short a season!

#21 MarigoldMadge

Posted 11 March 2013 - 01:20 PM

just watched the season finale.... loved it!!!

But..

8 months to the Christmas special!?! Too long!

#22 Soontobegran

Can I ask where you watched this? sad.gif
I am confused because I have been told the new series starts soon on ABC?

#23 MarigoldMadge

Posted 11 March 2013 - 02:01 PM

According to this link, http://www.abc.net.au/tv/guide/abc1/201303...3-24T203200.htm, CtM starts on March 24th, with last years Christmas special, followed by the 8 episodes of this current season, which just wrapped up last night in the UK.

I have too many friends in the UK and read too many UK websites, to be able to avoid spoilers, especially with it rating so high in the UK... 9 million viewers...

I've just been watching it on torrents (confession, I work in IT and I still had to get my little brother around to help me understand it!!)... I'll still watch it when it's on the ABC, and tape it etc... awesome season, you'll love it!

Oh thanks original.gif

That would have been way beyond me trying to work out how to watch it that way, I will patiently wait for the 24th.

I just finished watching season 2, the last episode was absolutely fantastic! It was by far IMO, the best episode yet. I can't wait until the third season comes out next year. It's a pitty it's still so far away...
