Blink and you missed it. It was sort of like a stocking filler for Ad Fab and Men Behaving BadlyWhen those series finished, this program was on, and as usually was the case for most BBC comedy's only had 6 episodes per series. Unfortunately it came at a time when there were better things on the box. If I remember right 1st series started on Monday's, 2nd series then went mid week.
It was set in a Manchester travel agency. David Threlfall (Frank from Shameless) worked with John Simm and tried to impose his worldly knowledge of most things, particularly women onto John. John was of the quiet reserved type like Saffy from Ad Fab and was trying to date their female colleague.
Best thing about it was the theme tune, something about "stepping on the cracks of the pavements".
