Set in Margate, each episode, created by actor improvisation, acts as a self-contained story, though all five stories are set in the same place and time and roughly interlink: A married man is torn between his family and his first love; a female teacher develops feelings for a female pupil; a middle aged woman ponders how to deal with stale marriage and cheating husband; a new father experiences love at first sight with a younger woman; and a divorcée searching for true love deals with an obsessive stalker.

Did You Know?


The first major UK TV series to be created through improvisation. There was no script, just a plot outline for each episode, and the actors developed their own characters as they went along. Before filming started, actors participated in an intense two-week improv and rehearsal period. See more »

Top class acting
16 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

That was a very thoughtful review of the series by BlunderGuts. It should help people to decide whether to watch it.

I totally agree with the opinion that Jane Horrocks' episode was excellent; you could really feel for her situation. Likewise episode 5 with David Morissey caught in an awkward situation with an obsessive girl.

I didn't find the shortness of the episodes a problem. What I did feel was that the acting was excellent including Lacy Turner from Eastenders. There wasn't a great deal of story but I like that as you can concentrate on the characters, and to me it looked so real and not melodramatic at all.

So when you can feel for the characters and picture the position they are in, it's impressive. If I hadn't been told I would not have been able to tell that it was improvised.

If you like Mike Leigh, watch these episodes. I was not impressed by several critics who were so rather negative.
