I think Coleen, Lizzie, Vera, Erica and Ann were the top actors in the show. Brilliant.
Joan and Bea were fab too. They had some top acting and brilliant stories. You dont need a budget just some good stories, brill writing and some decent actors from theatre in decent roles to pull off good drama.
It was character driven as well. The stories were brilliant, but without the great performances would have been average. The actresses made the stories so good.
