Martine McCutcheon plays a young working class girl, Tracy, who - against the wishes of her parents and racist ex-boyfriend - becomes one of three wives of West London Persian restaurateur, Sam (Art Malik).
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.

hi i absolutely love good movies, dramas and soaps. whilst on the internet looking at a website i seen something about the English Harem. seeing that Art Malik was in it made me really want to watch it. when it finally aired on our screens i was so happy because i hadn't seen Art on TV since he left Holby City. as sat for two hours watching this it made me realise that some people can be very racist and not appreciate other religious views (e.g Sam being allowed up to 4 wives.) Art and Martine played their roles brilliantly and with passion that shows what good actors they really are and i wish them all the best in what ever they do next.
