Sue Johnston plays Eileen Lewis, the mother - and grandmother - of a large family from Birkenhead.

After an affirming, but far less relaxing than hoped, Christmas trip to Lapland, the family are back beside the Mersey. Eileen's still struggling to find her own place in life following the death of husband Ted, and the stresses of her large, demanding family aren't helping her achieve a sense of peace.
