I absolutely agree with George, but I think something that's worth mentioning as well is the humour in the series. I once read a really nasty review, saying that the writers didn't have the slightest sense of humour and that the whole series was somehow rather boring. I don't agree at all: the great thing about Sensitive Skin is the incredibly subtle, and dark humour that is used. There's the scene in series 1 in which Al causes an argument with a woman who has parked her car next to Al's and the whole scene ends in the woman up smashing their old Mustang. By the end of the episode, when Al has discovered the ''leather guy'' Greg is flirting with Davina, he drives up to his house where he finds Greg's wife (who's opening the door) is in fact the same woman who smashed his car in.
Also, you have to be a bit patient with this series. The plot builds op rather slowly and the writers make you believe that nothing happens and that nothing goes on in Davina's head. You're only proven wrong by the end of the series which makes the shocking effect of the affair come across even better. (because of the way Joanna played her you wouldn't expect her character to be able to do such a thing)
What I also love about the series are the sceneries: everything's either black, white or grey and it's almost constantly raining. (I feel that this more or less reflects Davina's mood) Also, try paying attention to the soundtrack and you'll find that a lot of the lyrics are chosen for a reason: they reflect what's in actual fact happening in the series. (for instance, try listening to Baby Did A Bad, Bad Thing
and you'll know what I mean)

I'm afraid there were very few pictures released by the time Sensitive Skin
came out, so I think I wouldn't be able to send you more than 3 pictures, not even in HQ.
We visited a lot of the filming locations in London in February, so if you need any information on that (or if you want to use some of our pictures) feel free to ask!
