Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this British drama takes a sometimes painfully realistic look at the difficulties of marriages and families, including fertility concerns, infidelity, balancing careers with family life, and divorce. The subject matter can be quite emotional, especially for adults who can empathize with the characters' inner and interpersonal struggles. Though the content is likely mild enough for most teens, they probably won't fully understand or appreciate the couples' struggles.
Allusions to the state of couples' sex lives, mild foreplay (kissing, caressing through clothes) in bed, and discussion of infidelity are common. Occasional scenes of things like nightclub dancers wearing bras and thongs.
"S--t" is heard occasionally.
Every character is flawed in some way, and many sometimes display poor judgment. A man cheats on his wife, and she turns to alcohol for solace (including while caring for her children).
Drugs / Tobacco /
Adults often drink in social settings, and a couple smoke off and on. One female character drinks a lot during difficulties in her marriage.
