Kate & Koji - Series 1

From the creators of Outnumbered and What We Did On Our Holiday comes this entertaining sitcom series Kate & Koji, starring Golden Globe winner Brenda Blethyn (Outside Edge, Secrets & Lies) and Jimmy Akingbola (In The Long Run).

Kate (Blethyn) runs a small café in a neglected seaside town. Once a thriving concern, the café is now on the brink of going under. Kate develops a strong, if sometimes volatile, friendship with highly-educated African doctor Koji (Akingbola). After grilling him on why he doesn't spend any money, he reveals that he doesn't work; although he is a doctor, he is also an asylum-seeker. After word gets out, Koji becomes the unofficial general practitioner and holds 'surgery' in the café, raking up custom for Kate, who offers him free food to keep the scheme going.
