London cabbie Joe North has been working the roads of the capital for around a year. Living at home with his demanding mother, mucky toddler sister, and increasingly wayward younger brother, Peter, there's just one thing he looks forward to: work.

Driving around London is not just how Joe earns an income, but his black cab also proves "very handy for introductions", as he subtly puts it.

From a blonde threatening to throw herself off Lambeth Bridge because her husband has had the temerity to leave her (to go to work); to a young wife struggling with a large pile of West End purchases; some jokers from a cops and robbers themed party; and regular customer, prostitute Maisie; to a bored housewife ordering a succession of trades- and delivery-men to visit; Joe's cab certainly sees him get around!

With the help of best friend Tom and his girlfriend, Nikki the stripper, Joe's life could well be looking upward.
