Dossa and Joe: Your views
Anne Charleston as Dossa in Dossa and Joe
Anne Charleston played Madge in the soap Neighbours
Dossa and Joe is Caroline Aherne's new sitcom, starring Anne Charleston, of former Neighbours fame, and Michael Caton.

Aherne moved to Australia in June last year and that is the home of her latest offering, which tells the tale of a middle-aged couple going through marriage difficulties.

"The therapy scenes are extremely good but some of the other material varies wildly and also amplifies one failing that The Royle Family began to exhibit in its last series," wrote the BBC's William Gallagher.

"Specifically, a lot of time is spent in reference humour: characters quoting ads, films, Homer Simpson and so on."

But what do you think?

Will this be another success for Caroline Aherne?
