The comic daily lives of three misfits who share a London flat. Mandy, the beautiful, intelligent blonde who can't seem to keep a job or prevent the wrong men failing in love with her all the time. Matthew who owns the flat but can't step outside yet still manages to live out some bizarre fantasies much to the chagrin of the other occupants. Finally, Martin the red-haired dreamer who can't seem to find the right woman but has been having an on-off relationship with Clare for a long time whilst he searches in vain. Written by

At one point in episode three, of the first series, Matthew, played by Ben Chaplin, makes a reference to his new neighbor by referring to her as Winona Ryder. Ben would go onto act opposite Winona in the movie Lost Souls (2000). See more »
In the first series the number on the flat door was "7", but in the second and third series it is the same flat but has number "54" on the door. See more »
Perfect sitcom. The first in years I liked. The great sense of humor, the well played characters and the beautiful use of the art-language made this sitcom a high amusingly one. The exploited phobia of Matthew is perfectly mixed with the grimmerish ginger tosser and the behavior of the well-shagged blond. Perfect trio for a delighted laugh ever again. The series at the start is very good, especially the Fame episode, terrific how Ben Chaplin makes his moves to stardom and finally burns up by his phobia on stage. I never had such a laugh in ages. The way the second series build up their naivety gay-outcome is great.
