Frayed. Image shows from L to R: Rufus (Robert Webb), Sammy Burbeck (Sarah Kendall)
Having escaped from her native Australia, Sammy's situation is barely improved. Now living in a tiny London flat while frantically trying to prove that her lawyer has stolen her house, she's barely able to make ends meet working in 'exhaust management' (read: working as a secretary in a muffler repair shop).
