Married Single Other (UK)
Six-part romantic comedy drama, Married Single Other, tells the story of three couples trying to work out what a couple is these days.
You've gotta love Lillie. Although she's not much bigger than a pint of milk, Lillie is brave, funny, and utterly without vanity. She's a totally unromantic and uncompromising partner to Eddie, but she loves him with a passion that would frighten a pride of lionesses. Just don't expect her to say "I love you" out loud.
Lillie is a brilliant if somewhat combative mum. She's 35, had her children early, and went back to work immediately. Both she and Eddie are shift workers, and it's been hard but they managed with a little child minding help from her mum. Being second generation Irish, she is allergic to injustice and to say that Lillie has a short fuse is to mistake her for someone who has any kind of fuse at all.
Lillie spent her twenties in dead-end jobs that let her pursue her passion for getting arrested: "Nobody believes in anything any more and even I don't have time since the kids, but when I was young I believed that things could be changed. I believed that you shouldn't stand by while bad things happened. I stood where you shouldn't stand. Chained myself to stuff you are not allowed to chain yourself too. I made noise about all the usual suspects: Smoking Dogs, unfair taxes, carelessly placed bombs. All the cliches..."
A few years ago she stumbled into a job at a shelter for abused women. At the shelter she fell in love for only the second time in her life; the shelter is everything to her, a seemingly endless opportunity to try and fix broken things.
Home life for Lillie and Eddie is a bit of a struggle. Although money is tight and they have two eccentric and sometimes difficult kids, they have a love so powerful nothing can touch them. Well, almost nothing.
