Series 1, Episode 1 - Losing The Plot
In the first of four comedies, James Fleet stars as a timid man who confronts mindless bureaucracy in Nick Warburton's Losing The Plot.
As he is passing a local allotment, Edward, a bashful man, speaks to an attractive plot owner, Amanda. He decides there and then that he too must apply for a plot. But doing so involves an interview with ferocious site manager Bernie, who runs the allotments with military rigour.
It's all looking unlikely until Edward reveals that his father was a local landscape horticulturalist, one Bernie has admired all his life. Edward joins the site, but it is only then that he springs a surprise on Bernie - one that leads to explosive confrontation.
The cast features James Fleet as Edward, Joanna Monro as Amanda and Jonathan Coy as Bernie.
