Comedy set in the social services department of a local authority. Social workers Rose and Al swim against the tide of bureaucracy, deal with the absurdities of life and try to navigate their equally trying professional and personal lives.
When I first heard about this, and saw the trailers for it I pictured a series along the lines of The Lives and loves of a She Devil, not the case, it's a story of food and relationships, loves present and past.
Dawn French is always an advert for good television, and as always she does not disappoint. Emilia Fox plays the wronged wife beautifully, such a beautiful, talented actress, always good to see her in something away from Silent Witness.

Not exactly a gourmet meal, but a sweet treat nonetheless.
