There is infrequent implied strong language ('feckers'), as well as milder terms such as 'shagging', 'bloody', 'arse', 'bollocks', 'hell', 'Christ', 'God' and 'Jesus'. A woman uses the term 'cripple' about a man in a wheelchair; there is no discriminatory intent in the comment, and the term occurs as part of historical vocabulary relating to disability.
discrimination
There are examples of sexist attitudes prevailing at the time in which the drama is set, such as a husband telling his wife that he forbids her to go on a trip and leave him to cook and clean for the rest of the family, because that is her job.
rude humour
A toddler leave a trail of poo on a floor after his father does an incompetent job of putting a nappy on him.
theme
A woman believes she is responsible for her young son's apparent inability to speak because she attempted to induce a miscarriage when she was pregnant with him. Another woman tells her she should not feel guilty because the technique she used would never have been effective, and talks about her own experience of being driven to seek an abortion. There are also mild upsetting scenes centred on bereavement and illness, including cancer.
alcohol and smoking
Adult characters smoke and drink alcohol.
suicide and self-harm
There are references to a person's suicide by drowning.
