The drama is getting more interesting. I guess that something troubled Jamie. He is an accountant and dealing with some rich clients. Maybe a financial crime has involved. Lucy sensed or knew something wrong with him. But she doesn't want to speak it out. I am a fan of your English learning programs. I have learned a lot from them. Thank you

I've always loved consuming the BBC Learning English content not just because there is a wide range of options to choose from, but also the REAL GOOD content itself and I'm even more excited to watch this new drama series since I've always enjoyed suspense/drama stuff!!!

Father and son is an excellent option to train my ear. It is about something different and I want to congratulate you because thanks to you I have learned a bit of the English language. Please keep up your innovations and above all, give my congratulations to Helen. I love her. Please, I want to work with the BBC
