Unfortunately ITV didn't quite hit the mark – their flagship drama of last year Liar, dwelled in the rare and extremely muddy the waters of false rape claims, and was roundly criticised.
Following Linda, Sue and Gail, Girlfriends is about female friendship and the nightmare of growing old. Expect to see each woman's story laid out in toe-curling detail, as the three friends are united by the sudden death of Linda's husband.
Starring Miranda Richardson, Zoe Wanamaker and Phyllis Logan, hopes are high that ITV will get it right this year and give us a comedy that is both touching, honest and rip-roaringly funny.
