The series is a faithful adaptation of Alice Oseman's web comics and graphic novels, doubtless thanks to the fact that Oseman herself adapted the series for screen. Do you think that having the original writer adapt the series makes a difference in the show?

Charlie and Nick are subjected to homophobic bullying by Nick's so-called friends. Elle, a transgender teen, has recently moved from the boys' grammar school where all her friends are, to the girls' equivalent, after also suffering cruel taunts. All three of these stories are handled sensitively, realistically and above all, sweetly. In its purest form, Heartstoppers is a love story that is beautifully written and acted. Will you watch this series?

The author of the series has expressed her feelings about any backlash to the series. She feels that the very people who need to see this, just may not watch due to the subject matter being what it is. Her hope is that those same teens who are feeling alone and without any support, will find a way to watch. She feels the series could make the very difference between them feeling shunned and alone, to them feeling they have a place in this world and a hope that things will get better. Do you feel that many will miss out on this series simply because they are not allowed to watch it?
