Hello all, bit of a shameless plug I'm afraid but, Love in Recovery series 1 and 2, plus the Christmas Special will soon be available on CD or 'download to own' from Amazon. Release date is December the 1st, but it's available to pre order now.
Plug over. Sorry about that. Series 3 coming soonish
Xx

Really glad you're enjoying it so far! It's been great to have half an hour per episode to play with, and we've been able to get deeper into the characters and their stories (and give our amazing actors even more to do). Hope you like the rest of the series!
Pete

Hi Albert. No thanks necessary! It's a pleasure to meet you. Yes, people really have taken this series to their hearts, which is thrilling for me as it's such a personal show.
The cast are truly amazing, and they were all brilliant to work with. Obviously I'd heard it all in my head many many times as I was writing it but to hear it brought to life by such great actors was wonderful.
I think one of the things that Jerry the sound engineer (more than a recordist, quite right) brought out so well, with the noises from adjoining rooms and outside etc, was the sense that in this grotty little rooms lives change and people reveal such intimate things, but just beyond the four walls life carries on as normal. There's a moment, I think in ep 1 where Fiona (Rebecca Front) reaches a sad moment in her story and a passing group of girls break out into laughter that I think illustrates what I mean. I love that moment. And yes, it was great to have Danno outside undermining the whole process from the outset by screaming through the window (his mate was played by me.. we'll get a proper actor next time).
I'd love to transfer to TV and discussions are taking place, but I'd also love to do more for radio (I'd never done any before and thoroughly enjoyed it). I shall keep you posted. Again, thanks so much for listening and I'm really chuffed you like it! Thanks. Pete

Hi, Pete Jackson here, I wrote the series 'Love in Recovery'. Just wanted to say how glad I am you're enjoying it. Credit for the great sound has to go to our sound recordist Jerry Peal who's fantastic and did a brilliant job recreating the atmosphere of an AA meeting room (we also recorded it in an AA room to add authenticity). Again, thrilled you're enjoying it. Hope you like ep 6
