    Carmen Moyo is EVERYTHING. I'm watching season 5 just to see what happens to her. The whole fake court thing is boring tho.
  • Jul 19, 2021
    Have just seen the first three episodes and am captivated! Excellent cast and acting, sharp scripts, neat direction, superb sets & wardrobe - series five is an outstanding addition to this dynamic, responsive, intelligent and fun show.
  • Jul 13, 2021
