BBC One sitcom about a woman. 8 episodes (1 series) in 2005. Stars Jessica Hynes, Greg Wise, Raquel Cassidy, Oliver Chris and others.

Series 1, Episode 1 - Stuck In The Middle With You

Persuaded by a colleague to give speed-dating a try, Bex plans an evening of romance - but reckons without the intervention of her over-protective father.

Further details

Bex's decision to take her relationship with Ryan to the next step backfires and somehow results in them breaking up. How did that happen? She hadn't meant it to happen.

Things don't get much better at work when her boss, Charles, insists she find some prosthetic testicles for his newly neutered dog - just another task in a day's work for Bex.

Finding herself suddenly single, Bex reluctantly agrees to go speed dating with her colleague Chris.

Just as she's about to leave the flat, her dad Jack turns up unannounced to stay the night.

Left alone, he overhears a strange answerphone message and decides his daughter needs rescuing from the speed dating.
