There are some familiar names in the cast Diane Keen (Cuckoo Waltz), Barbera Lott (Sorry!).


Oliver Pryde has lived with his girlfriend Sandy Bennett for six years and arrangement suits him just fine.  That is until Sandy announces that she wants to get married, Oliver always thought she was happy with the arrangement too.

Sandy’s claims that to be unconventional these days means getting married wrong-foots Oliver.  However by the end of series one they do get married.

Adjusting to married life Sandy is content with her victory, until she discovers that statistics prove that marriages of people who have previously lived together last as many months as the years they have co-habited!
