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!

That last of the series, right from the start, was like a large fishing hook was cast into my heart and pulled tight, right to the very end.

Oh, and can I just say, I noticed how wonderfully the narrative at the end fitted in with the timing of the singing of Whispering Hope in the background, with a final singing of the chorus nicely ending the episode.

Whispering Hope is a well known song but new to me. I shall learn it on my button accordion and if I play it at the music session down the pub, I wonder will I be able to keep a dry eye?


Edited to add: Eddie Marsan stole the show here, as would be expected for this episode.
Bloke in Car did a good job too.

And for the record, could I add a link I found to an interview with Pete Jackson, the writer of the series and very welcome member of this forum:

https://www.comedy.co.uk/radio/love_in_recovery/interview/pete_jackson/

And further, I must mention in this thread somewhere, Producer/Director Ben Worsfield. There is a lot of wonderful work been sculptured into these masterpieces.

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

I'm not generally a fan of repeats, unless thay are very good. Love in Recovery ticks all the boxes of course.

I find myself sometimes seeing things from a slightly different point of view now. The emphasis is in another direction.

If I may, I'll explain once this series is complete. All very interesting though. Still funny, still sad, still heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.
