Award winning performer Julia Davis (Human Remains) writes and stars in a new black comedy co-starring Angus Deayton, Rebecca Front, Felicity Montagu and Kevin Eldon.
Julia plays Jill the owner of a suburban beauty salon who sees her husband Terry’s terminal illness a whole new world of possibilities opening up for herself. She tells everyone that Terry is dead, joins the ”Lasso the Moon” Matchmaking Agency and goes on a rather peculiar blind-date with Glen who describes his personality as “Scottish”.
Jill then attends her ‘Fun and Fellowship’ group at the local village hall and meets her new neighbour and man of her dreams – Doctor Don Cole. Jill locks her sights firmly on the GP, who she discovers has just moved into the house opposite, but there’s one problem, he has a wife, in the form of wheelchair-bound Cath. Undeterred by this small obstacle, Jill descends on their lives… and won’t leave.
Julia describes her character as: “Jill Farrell, mid 20’s, widow with a lust for life and a flexible spine.”
