Like plenty before her, social worker Clare Barker has entered a caring profession so that she can sort out other people's problems rather than deal with her own. A control freak, Clare likes nothing better than interfering in other people's lives on both a professional and personal basis, while at the same time finding it a trial having to put up with tiresome members of the public. Politically correct, humourless, and prone to jargon, she is entirely lacking in self-awareness, making her encounters with colleagues, family, and her partner, Brian, wonderfully entertaining and richly comic.

"Wildly funny." (Sunday Times)
"The sharpest script I've heard for years." (The Observer)
The story, the character's personalities, listening and imagining the scenarios. Great radio presentation.
The whole thing, particularly with Brian
Glad there are more series to enjoy
