Certain that it’s only a matter of time before he makes it, struggling actor Robert throws himself into every role, taking ‘break a leg’ a bit too literally!

Fiancée Sue (Gina McKee, Notting Hill) is always on hand to support and encourage him, whilst his less-than-capable agent Desmond (Victor Spinetti, A Hard Day’s Night) desperately tries to flog his talent – unsuccessfully.

First broadcast in 1991, following on from a hugely popular run on BBC Radio 2, the series was written by Paul Mayhew-Archer (The Vicar of Dibley, Miranda, Esio Trot) and co-starred Benedict Taylor (Notes on a Scandal) and Sophie Dix (The Advocate).
