but it wasn't the end. They've already made two more episodes for season 4 and it is still in production for the rest of season 4.

Enjoy the honest dialogue in this well-written script. Enjoy the usual fine acting (performed by every cast member) that you expect from a first-rate BBC series. I particularly enjoyed the performances of Sarah Lancashire (Caroline) and Derek Jacobi (Alan), who proves his dramatic mastery once again. This very entertaining adult fairy tale happily omits the anguish of poverty so you can vicariously escape into the lives of these fictional characters who deal with many emotional difficulties but who never worry about where their next meal is coming from. This series really shines when the characters keep going in spite of difficult emotional situations. The unimaginable highs and lows presented are given the time to be dealt with patiently. As one character says, "It takes time to adjust." Human foibles are presented honestly, and at times a character's reaction is hard to watch because you want that character to behave better. We are human and limited by our humanity but also inspired by our humanity. This series ended at the right time on the right note - no need for a series 4.
