Description

Clatterford St Mary’s is a small town but big enough to have a good cross section of people, local shops and a late night convenience store. It’s also small enough to have a strong sense of community where everyone knows everybody’s business, but doesn’t talk about it unless asked. It’s not twee or too pretty — it’s a proper working place. A place which also has a thriving Women’s Guild, whose meetings feature discussions, important agenda items and a visiting speaker (‘How
to solve world poverty’ one week and ‘The benefits of using marrow in jam’ the next). The Guild is the centre of village life whether it likes it or not. A glittering cast features in this hilarious and heartwarming comedy from the writer and star of Absolutely Fabulous.

    Episode 1

    With her husband (Hywel Bennett) being the grumpy doctor of the town, Sal is always the voice of common sense and font of all knowledge when it comes to the town’s people and their needs. She never has a moment to herself but that is just the way she likes it, as long as she has her best friend, Tip, to keep her sane and go for a quick half with in the pub. Despite her knowledge and love of her fellow townsfolk, she cannot bring herself to join the local church’s Women’s Guild – she thinks the knitting and cake-baking is not really her scene – and avoids being recruited by the Guild’s leader, Eileen, at every opportunity.
