When asked about the closeness of the shows cast, actress Katherine Parkinson said: “As a cast, we got on almost straight away, especially as some of us knew each other already. I’ve had a lot more to do with Hannah, Tara and Jonathan, but as a whole cast we all get on brilliantly. It’s been a very happy job. One of the reasons I wanted to do it was because it had lots of females and I’m usually with lots of men.”
