Storyline

Ten years ago, Spike ('Henry Goodman'), abandoned Amy ('Harriet, Walter') and ran off to Paris with his mistress. Amy never quite recovered from the shock and has spent all that time in therapy trying to come to terms with Spike's betrayal. Amy thinks she has recovered when her lover falls in love with and moves in with her own daughter and she finds herself back at square one, alone and miserable, with only the young, beautiful, popular, cynical Tanya (Jaye Griffiths) to comfort her. Completely out of the blue Amy and Spike literally crash into one another again in a car wash. Is there still a spark left burning between them or will past hurt and pain prevent them from reuniting?

Review
21 June 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It's some years since I've seen this rather black comedy, but I remember the scripts being of a very high standard.

There are some very incisive lines delivered to perfection by the leads, who play their antagonist roles to a tee.

As with other Maurice Gran and Lawrence Marks productions this is a cut above your average British sitcom. These guys really seem to understand the human psyche and all its foibles, and have a gift for turning it to their advantage. Harriet's sessions with her therapist are particularly clever.

Highly recommended for those who like intelligent, thought provoking comedy delivered with generous dollops of pathos.
