    I wanted either Lisa or Ivy to die - Bittersweet endings are usually the best)

    Ok screw that, I love Lisa - I didn't want her to die - why couldn't Ivy die or why couldn't there have been a Romeo + Juliet ending for Elliot? (Obviously minus the death of Lisa)

    It's not, I have just been watching several other series which are much better. If I was only watching Thirteen I would probably give it an 8/10

    That's why I wanted a bittersweet ending - but a lot of TV nowadays is predictable - it's all the same and half the people who watch a program have guessed the ending correctly by the time the series ends.

    Exactly!
    I want to know what happens to Phobe- does she recover, Ivy- how does she end up, Lisa- what happens to hers and Elliot's friendship?

    There should be a second season, but I doubt it will happen.

    Loved the series as a whole, but I felt episode 5 was a bit flat. It just sort of fizzled out leaving questions unanswered.

    Sadly I don't think there's anyway to squeeze a second series out

    Feel the same, but the BBC have come out with some really decent new series

    Great series up until the last 15 minutes.

    Almost like the producers ran out of budget and had to wind things up pdq.

    Implausible in places, but on the whole gripping and well acted.

    Have you watched any of the Jimmy McGovern 'Accused' (2012) drama's? Gritty, harrowing and outstandingly well acted. I particularly liked 'Mo's story' with leads by Anne Marie Duff and Olivia Colman who is a revelation.
