Ivan Brackenbury is the cheery if inept radio DJ at Bramlington Hospital where porter Ian D.

Studio sitcom about three marriages in various states of disrepair. Rob and Cathy have been married for a long time, and it shows.

When things get tricky in these relationships the characters are able to stop the action, explain themselves directly to the audience and start it all up again.
