This se­ries – which gave Down­ton Abbey a run for its money in the UK – con­tin­ues to be cap­ti­vat­ing. It’s also rack­ing up the num­bers here on ABC.

Set in East Lon­don in the ’50s, it is based on the mem­oirs of Jen­nifer Worth – a dis­trict nurse raised amid wealth now work­ing in a strug­gling, poverty-stricken community. Tonight Jenny (Jes­sica Raine) finds some per­spec­tive in a pa­tient, Joe ( Roy Hudd), when she is put on a dis­trict nurs­ing ros­ter. Meet­ing Joe, an old sol­dier liv­ing in a bug-in­fested flat, is un­ex­pect­edly touch­ing for Jenny.

Great cast­ing, good script, beau­ti­ful sets and authen­tic cos­tume de­signs – this re­viewer is hooked.
