Storyline

Kensington supermarket cash register clerk Tracy Pringle looses her job for daydreaming about the romantic Orient. Sass and the fruit of fascination for the East get her employed as salesclerk in rich, sophisticated Iranien ex-pat Saaman "Sam" Sahar's exclusive vegetarian restaurant and soon wins his sensual, yet not sexual attention. Her boyfriend Richar, whom she dumps after a blatant infidelity, tries to turn the authorities on them after discovering he has a 'harem' consisting of a legal wife and two mundane Iranian 'consort' ladies, actually more protégées.

Absolute Timewaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
27 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has to be the worst TV Drama I have ever watched.

The story has nothing to do with the reality of the Islamic Culture or the concept of having up to four wives! I seriously can't understand what research has been carried out for this Drama.

It is an appalling attempt by the writer and actors, who have disgraced themselves in being involved in such a flop.

I thought Art Malik was beginning to pick up after his role in 'Holby City', however his acting was so poor in this drama that i wouldn't be surprised if this has taken away his chance of any progression. I think he seems to think that this is somewhat like the drama 'Stolen', which he previously acted in.....I'm afraid Art, Stolen was crap and this one was far far worse. I hope i don't see him on screen for a loooooooooonnnng time.

As for Martine, well she did a good job in Eastenders and that's about all.....we know that her 'only moment' .....was a huge failure proving that she couldn't sing and after her performance in this drama, i'd be confident to say that she can't act either.....i think Martine has just waved her so called career goodbye!!
