Two middle-aged divorcées from very different backgrounds, art editor Bill (James Bolam) and freelance illustrator Faith (Lynda Bellingham), try to start a relationship despite all of the problems caused by her teenage children, Hannah (Julia Sawalha) and Joe (Mark Denham), and his devious ex-wife, Liza (Belinda Lang).

Bill’s boss at the magazine where he works, Richard (Geoffrey Whitehead), is married to Marjorie (Georgina Melville) but having an affair with Liza.

This sitcom from LWT was adapted from a radio series based upon the real-life relationship of the writers, husband and wife Jan Etherington and Gavin Petrie.
