Aside from the wonderful character relationships, story arcs, and emotional output these actors put into them, the writing is also brilliant. Heidi Thomas, who is no stranger to BBC productions, is a talent beyond words. She has a deep appreciation for these characters and their stories. This is something I admire and respect about the way she tells these stories.

Season six takes us on an unforgettable journey. From deep emotional (and literal) scars and challenges for each character (Phyllis being one of them) to a happier ending that is sure to make the romantic in us swoon, there is never a dull moment. I’d also be remiss if I didn’t mention Trixie as a favorite character/story. Her story arc this season is beautiful and precious, and awww… I love it still as I think back. Barbara also gets a nice story. 

Basically series six is a memorable binge-worthy experience. Fans will love these new additions.
