Whether she likes it or not the out-spoken, no-nonsense Yorkshire woman Barbara ('Gwen Taylor') has become the agony aunt, problem-solver for her extended family. Her husband, Ted ('Sam Kelly'), has the most amazing of adventures whilst driving his cab everyday whilst her outrageous son-in-law, Martin (Mark Benton), seems to investigate the most bizarre news stories for the local television station. Even at work she can't escape as she gets it in one ear from the other receptionist, Doreen (Madge Hindle), whose husband becomes involved in the most perverse of activities and in the other from her sister Jean (Sherrie Hewson) who positively enjoys relating her latest sexual conquests. Through it all Barbara struggles vainly on hoping one day for a quieter life! Written by

Trash drivel etc, and its back 4 a second series oh dear, the jokes are second hand, the acting if you can call it that is terrible. Its also on prime time television, while it deserves to be on in the graveyard slot. So many decent series' get canned, why does the rubbish keep coming back. Please stop this madness
