Reviews from the time praised the actress for her performance. The series was also praised how it held everything together, even when the plot delved into a little silliness.

Another archive ITV series that has been doing well on Netflix after recently joining the service is Fat Friends, the 2000 to 2005 series that starred future Gavin & Stacey cast members Ruth Jones, Alison Steadman, and James Corden. Sheridan Smith also appeared in a few episodes, too.
