Rejoin Alice Chenery in the second series of this poignant BBC romantic comedy as she searches for love, and find out whether her potential partners turn out to be any less bizarre, embarrassing or generally unsuitable than in the first series.
Alice is now an account manager for a perfume counter in a London department store. Millie and Cleo are her sweet, ever-so-slightly deranged staff, keen to see the funny, caring but somewhat reticent Alice find the happiness she deserves - and not above fighting each other in pursuit of their own. This poignant romantic comedy charts the highs and lows of the three girls' quirky encounters with the opposite sex, in search of their perfect match.
Alice's new friends drag her into the world of showbiz. There, her encounters with heartthrob actor Jake Randall, veteran comedian Gordon Bexter, madcap Marty Cady and a German necrophiliac only serve to increase her self-doubt. Could Douglas really be "the one"? Should she adopt the more off-beat attitude to romance shared by her perfume counter colleagues Millie and Cleo? Or could it really be possible that she lost her soul mate?

For me the main weakness of Series 1 was the dual lead characters, with the quite separate scenes which could almost have been separate series. Of course the creative tension concerned the possibility of the 2 lead characters being obviously meant for each other if only they could meet one day. Well for me that wore thin pretty quickly, and I found myself waiting for the action to return to the girls at the perfume counter.
Well the American male lead was unavailable for Series II, which means that we can concentrate on Alice and the girls.... and this is a big improvement. The action now takes the form of a more traditional sitcom, focussing on the hilarious and usually very rude love lives of the 3 girls, whose characters have grown to fill the space left by the male lead. Consistently inventive and sometimes a trifle shocking but always laugh out loud funny.
Put on this DVD, open a bottle of wine and forget about your worries for half an hour or so: terrific.
Let's be plain, whilst this is still head and shoulders above almost every other piece of situation comedy out there, it is just not as good as Series 1. The first series was utterly compelling and exceptional.
By moving from a twin track to a single track storyline, a lot of the depth and subtlety are lost. The new half hour format also does not give the stories as much room to breathe. There are still some very touching moments, but we felt the resolution of the relationship with Gill was most disheartening after the wonderful set up of season 1.
Still - very funny and well worth watxhing.
