Jovial, warm-hearted humour with some tears to balance the laughs.
Thankfully, the minor disasters of new fish in a strange pond were kept to a minimum,
to focus on the goings-on of an eccentric but endearing cast of characters.

Really good start for this series. Some drama but on the light side. Enjoyable and entertaining!
