A Young Carers Kingdom

I’ve just finished watching Kingdom on itv 1, which I have been following since the first series. I was very pleased to see that in this last episode they brought attention to the issues surrounding young carers and their families. I found it heart rending, and I have to admit shed a few tears.

My only complaint is that it was quite a complex issue to tackle in only one hour, along with several other story lines running along side, and so processes that the likes of us know take weeks and months seemed to be resolved within a day (such as claiming DLA). Maybe they should have started this story at the beginning of the series, with it reaching its conclusion tonight, which would have been more realistic. Still definitely worth a watch though.

Although not yet available online as I type this, episode six should be available soon in the catch-up section here.
