Amanda Whittington's adaptation of Nina Stibbe's comic novel set in 1970s Leicestershire about the madcap schemes of three kids to find their recently divorced mum a new man

Directed by Gemma Jenkins

Set in a small Leicestershire village in the 1970s, this four-part comedy drama is about the madcap schemes of three children to cheer up their recently divorced mum, Elizabeth. Struggling to cope, she has taken to drinking and compulsive playwriting - neither of which impresses villagers already deeply suspicious of an attractive divorcee. Top of their list is to find her a new man in the hope that it will appease the hostile locals.
