What to expect
The complete first and second series of the award-winning sitcom written by and starring Morwenna Banks (Absolutely) and Rebecca Front (The Thick of It) set in, yes, a library, but no ordinary library. This is the library overseen and run by the most unlikely pairing since Mills met Boon.
Meet Alice (Rebecca Front) - a former child prodigy who won a place at Oxford aged nine, but because Daddy went too she never needed to have any friends. She's scared of everything - everything that is, except libraries and Snoo (Morwenna Banks), a slightly confused individual, with a have-a-go attitude to life, marriage, haircuts and reality. Snoo loves books, and fully intends to read one someday.
And forever popping into the library is Dr. Cadogan (Michael Fenton Stevens), celebrity doctor to the stars and a man with his finger in every pie. Charming, indiscreet and quite possibly wanted by Interpol, if you want a discrete nip and tuck and then photos of it accidentally left on the photocopier, Dr Cadogan is your man.
Their happy life is interrupted by the arrival of Simon Nielson (Ben Willbond), a man with a mission, a mission to close down inefficient libraries. Fortunately, he hates his mission. What he really wants to do is once, just once get even with his inexhaustible supply of high-achieving brothers....
