A control freak, Clare likes nothing better than interfering in other people's lives on both a professional and personal basis. Secretly regarding herself as a cross between Mother Theresa and Wonder Woman, Clare tends towards self-importance and considers most other professions as trivial. She is in her early 30s, white, middle class, and heterosexual, all of which are occasional causes of discomfort to her. Each week we join Clare in her continued struggle to control both her professional and private life.

Hi, I'm Peter. I'm mostly here for language acquisition - the Michel Thomas stuff is amazing. I've now "read" To the Lighthouse (sic)
Working closely with social workers as a Doctor, and from my background in social sciences I found this hit the right spot on humour, social commentary and poked fun everywhere.
As with much comedy it's often quite akin to tragedy and some of the issues covered are tragic.
If you want a laugh, a commentary on social policy from the front line in a humorous parody, this if for you. If not, get something else!
classic radio comedy. really enjoyed it and the characters are so funny . have listened twice all the way through and still laughed out loud
Biting satire played by characters all suffering from diverse versions of paralysis by analysis. psychobabble, arrogance and all the 'isms' get their fair share of scrutiny.
