Remember Anna Maxwell-Martin playing the heroine who's trying to negotiate her way through motherhood, school gate cliques etc? Diane Morgan playing her plucky new friend, and SAHD Paul Ready? Written by Graham and Helen Linehan, Sharon Horgan and Holly Walsh?

The pilot is being shown again on BBC2 on Monday at 10:00pm with the series to start next week, according to Radio Times.

Great. I really enjoyed the pilot.

Yay! I read the interview with Diane Morgan today in the Guardian. Looking forward to It!

Pithivier - it was a good half-hour comedy about a woman coping with all the stuff that mothers of young children deal with. Witty and original IMO - give it a try on Monday to see if you like it too!

They were filming this in the cafe near my house a while back.... I saw the pilot and enjoyed it.

Ooh I liked that! Thank you

Quite enjoyed but a little too cliche-d - Queen Bee SAHM, breast feeding, single laid back mum etc. The writers have definantly been reading mumsnet!

shittyshitybangbang Mon 30-Oct-17 22:58:45

I'm checking the BBC IPlayer but it's not on there, anyone know why?.

Optimist1 Mon 30-Oct-17 23:05:05

It seems to be available now, shittyshitty - available for 29 days. I used the search box to locate it.

Glad you enjoyed it, RJ.

Funniest thing I've seen for years! As soon as it started I thought Mumsnetters are going to LOVE this! Maybe a few will have cat's-bum-mouth because it so succinctly took the piss out of certain types, but I doubt that they'll admit to it....,... grin

Loved the pilot! Hope the series is as good.

Just as fab as I remembered. Good to see AMW in a comedy for a change and Lucy Punch nails her character, Amanda.

That was hilarious. Loved it!

LloydColeandtheCoconuts Tue 31-Oct-17 14:35:07

Just watched this, really enjoyed it.

Just watched this, laughed a lot - which is rare for a Tuesday.

southeastdweller Tue 07-Nov-17 18:37:46

Meant to say AMM not AMW (Anna Maxwell Martin).

Heads up that the series starts tonight!

CoolCarrie Tue 07-Nov-17 20:06:00

Tonight 10.00 BBC 2

Oh my God! This is the best news I've had all day! I LOVED the pilot.

It was a bit clichéd, but me and DH had some proper belly laughs at parts so I'm looking forward to watching more of it.
