To Hull And Back is a sitcom from BBC New Comedy Award 2012 winner Lucy Beaumont about a mother and daughter struggling to make ends meet.

Sophie still lives at home with her mum in Hull. They make a living doing car boot sales at the weekend - except they don't really make a living because her mum can't bear to get rid of any of their junk.

As their house gets more cluttered, Sophie feels more trapped, and dreams of moving to London to meet her dad and become a famous actress. But will this dream come true?
