The Carters are a middle-class, middle-aged couple who live in leafy Cheshire. Kate is well-meaning, charitable and something of a scatterbrain - Richard is her stabilising influence who puts up with her eccentricities. Together with their friends and neighbours, the Nelsons, they manage to liven up their suburban existence.
