Geoffrey Palmer (As Time Goes By, Mrs. Brown) and Wendy Craig (The Forsyte Saga) star in this distinctive BBC series. Funny and poignant, the story revolves around a housewife frustrated by life with her detached husband and glib sons, and by her own dismal failure to master even the boring and repetitive tasks at hand. As a handsome admirer pursues her, she guiltily flits from her real life to this exciting distraction like a butterfly aware that its time is running out. Created by prolific Britcom writer Carla Lane (The Liver Birds, Bread). Includes the Christmas special.
