Series created by Jimmy McGovern that ran for three series and begins a rerun on ITV3 tonight (5/5/17)
Each episode focussed on a different character, who lived on this street and said character would then only appear briefly in other episodes, where the focus would be on somebody else.
Timothy Spall appeared in all three series, though many of the cast changed. Series 1 featured Jane Horrocks, Jim Broadbent, Sue Johnson. The best story was Neil Dudgeon being wrongly accused of exposing himself at a child.
Series 2 highlights were David Thewlis playing identical twins and Mark Benton as a depressed postman.
Series 3 featured Bob Hoskins, Frances Barber, Anna Friel, Daniel Mays, Stephen Graham, Maxine Peake and Ruth Jones.
The series is well worth catching if you haven't seen it before.
