Series 1, Episode 1 - Home

Returning early to Leeds from a post-university gap-year tour of India, cousins Meg and Bunny - and friend Laura - do not get the smooth homecoming they had hoped for.

Full synopsis

Meg and her cousin Bunny return home to Leeds, having cut short their gap year trip round India. They're greeted at the airport by their best friend Laura but - disaster - also by Meg's stalker-ish ex-boyfriend Mark. As far as Mark's concerned, they're still together.

Unsurprisingly the homecoming doesn't run smoothly - and then there's also the small matter of finding a house and finding a job.

Surely having got a degree and being now travellers of the world, the perfect life should all fall into place...?
