Synopsis

The first six episodes of the BBC 3 series set in the fictional coastal town of Horton-Le-Hole. A controlling optician meets a mild-mannered librarian to enact illicit fantasies as Oscar-winning movie stars and Olympic champions; a socially inept geography teacher dreams of becoming a Deputy Head; an elderly pyromaniac dwarf psychic has set up a business in a bus stop; and, while romantic fiction books are systematically and mysteriously vandalised, one of the greatest love affairs the world has ever known begins to stir in the town's library... The series is written by twin sisters Emma and Beth Kilcoyne, and stars Emma Kilcoyne and Sam Battersea - both of whom play a number of bizarre and larger-than-life characters. The series is based on their live act, LIVE! GIRLS!, which played at the Edinburgh Festival to great acclaim.
