Wonderful hands down
This is such a good show. My big goofy husband even likes it. It is funny, touching, deep and telling.
Women taking Charge!
Encouraging, compelling show. Each episode leaves you with an "I can accomplish anything !" Thank you, we all need that. 🐾🐾
Wonderful series! It brings back many memories!
My father grew up in the East End and my mother was a nurse at The London Hospital when he was a patient.
As a registered nurse myself and a student midwife in England in the 1960s, I can relate to so many things in the show. It is very authentic and I cannot say enough good things about it!
