Caroline Quentin at her best
on 21 July 2005
This is a wonderful look at how life can suddenly turn upside down when you least expect it, and how we learn to get on with things. As Maggie's safe but dull life is rocked by her husbands announcement that he is leaving her for another woman, she is left to pick up the pieces. Slowly, as she comes to terms with having to return to work to pay the bills, despite being trained for nothing, she starts to see that her husband walking out isn't the end of her life, or the world, in fact, things are just getting interesting.
