Created by Lucy Gannon, who wrote 4 of the 6 episodes in 2013, Frankie is the story of the trials and tribulations of a District Nurse, dealing with a dishonest boyfriend, and a stalker of a boss. As with many a series we watch, it’s always interesting to see a large proportion of cast from Who, Torchwood and SJA.
So as usual, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to.
