Storyline

In post-war London, upper-middle class barrister John Lomax and his wife Barbie decide after several years of constant bickering to divorce. They underestimate the effect of their announcement on their three children, who assume that family friend Bill Ogden is to blame. Uncle Bill may indeed be waiting in the wings, but it's all hardly his fault. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>
