A delicious recipe for domestic disaster! Take one small town where everyone thinks they know everyone else's business. Add three households: MP Mike Andrews, his wife Gill and two young children; Church of Scotland minister Tom Graham, his wife Ali, two teenage daughters and an afterthought; Sixty-something local businessman Jack Caldwell, and his childless wife Phyllis.
Mix in several large dollops of scandal, some secrets and a tragedy.
Turn up the heat and bring to the boil. Season with one eccentric old lady - Minty Oliver - and serve with the tabloid press and a big helping of local gossip.

Review by ChrisSterry
Very humouros and enjoyable. Sad and poignant at tha same time. Wonderful though it was that a Fairy Godmother emergaed to sort out all the probleems at the last minute (it doesn't happen in rwal life, sadly) it left us with hope for the future of all the characters out of a horrendous human mess.
