Wadenbrook is a small market town in a corner of Northamptonshire, whose inhabitants live quiet but by no means uneventful lives.

'North by Northamptonshire' was originally broadcast weekly from 16 June 2010 to 7 July 2010. In each episode we catch up with Rod, the local supermarket manager (Mackenzie Crook), who shares rather more than is usual about his private life over the store's tannoy system.
