Storyline

Helen Stephens is wrongly sentenced to 12 years in prison for murdering her boss Eric Bridges, the managing director of Entirely Tiles. Although she is sure that it will only be a matter of time before this mistake is rectified, everyone around her seems to be conspiring to keep her behind bars. Lawyer Tony is incompetent, sister Laura wants her flat, and fiancé Justin - her alibi - has disappeared. Colleague Henry seems to be the only one willing to help, but he has an ulterior motive.

Brilliant new comedy
10 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

I don't understand how this programme has only received 5.6 so far, this comedy is brilliant I haven't seen anything better for ages (although last years 'Spy' is worth a mention). What else is there out there that you could possibly give any decent marks to.

Sharon Horgan is surely one of the best writers of new comedy; more power to her. With Jennifer Saunders as a regular and others like Caroline Quentin popping in, well 5.6 is quite frankly an insult. I wouldn't mind so much if we were inundated with sit com after sit com that constantly has us rolling in the aisles but we most definitely aren't, which is why this comedy is even more worth while.

Last nights episode with the music competition was hysterical, roll on season 2.
