Further details

Emma has landed a small part in Dan's film, which stars Lena Headey as an autistic 19th Century baker. Meanwhile, Sally takes time off work to attend David's father's funeral. Eleanor accuses her of flirting with Nigel, a recently divorced work colleague. But Sally tells Eleanor that she has a girlfriend. At the funeral, Kate confesses to Sally that she has serious doubts about Emma.

Back on set, things go badly for Emma in her scene with Lena Headey, and it looks like she will be sacked. That is until she comes up with an exciting sexual offer that Dan can't refuse. Unfortunately both Kate and Sally arrive on set in time to witness more than they bargained for.

Lena Headey on set

Lena Headey is playing an autistic 19th-century baker in Dan's film.

Featuring: Julia Davis (Emma), Seb Cardinal (Dan) & Lena Headey.

Emma in the make-up trailer

Emma heads to the make-up trailer where she talks to the make-up artist about some changes in the plan.

Featuring: Julia Davis (Emma), Nick Mohammed (Mark) & Joanna Scanlan (Stella).


It is easy to forget just how little Julia Davis cares for what the audience might call "taste" or "decency". Davis plays Emma, a narcissist confronting middle-age by removing any moral boundaries that remain in her life. This includes having sexual relations with her lover's best friend's husband. And when I say "relations", I mean something more sordid than anything I have seen on the small screen before. All of it played for proper, if absolutely excruciating, laughs.
