Meet the Braithwaites. Belinda Braithwaite (Hannah Gordon) and David Braithwaite (Peter Egan) enjoy a very unconventional marriage.
Belinda works full-time as an outspoken and respected bank manager. David is a “stay-at-home-Dad”, who takes care of the household, shares coffee mornings and innuendos with their flirty neighbor Louise (Lill Roughley) and volunteers at the Citizens Advice Bureau.
Tired of the rat race, and with the kids now at university, Belinda wants to quit her exhausting job for a simpler life as a housewife. But David has other ideas. He doesn’t relish the prospect of returning to a full-time job and does everything he can to persuade Belinda to continue wearing the trousers.
John Bird stars as Belinda’s deputy at the bank who firmly believes a woman’s place is in the home. With an eye on the top job he’d love to see her go and makes office life as unpleasant as he can to try and edge her out.
Will David find a ‘proper’ job? Will Belinda quit the bank? Will Louise ever have her wicked way with David?
