Morven Christie and Siobhan Redmond star as ditzy boss Izzy and her cannily capable PA Janine in this Edinburgh-based sitcom.

Thistle-Do-It Tours is getting by, no thanks to Izzy, who has a 4G phone, a designer wardrobe and all the common sense of a cocktail bridie. Just as well Janine is now on board...

Janine hasn't worked in an office for nearly 20 years and has never heard of hot-desking, tweeting or organic Rooibos but Izzy couldn't have hired a better PA... especially when Izzy takes a bunch of American foodies on an ill-fated tour of the Trossachs, alienates her besotted driver and loses head honcho, Ben, in the middle of nowhere after 'schmoozing' him good and proper the night before.

Despite major driving anxieties, Janine retrieves the now legless Ben from a bar in Balquhidder and entertains him with 'real' Scottish food, while also organising Izzy's dad's surprise 60th birthday party. She even, graciously, lets Izzy believe she saved the day.
