Episodes

Jo is happily married to policeman Steve, with two young children: on the face of it, the perfect family. But Steve is always distracted by his exciting job, and the kids are busy at school and no longer need Jo 24/7, leaving her with the housework and the weekly shop. Beneath the surface, Jo feels boring and invisible. That is, until she accidentally shoplifts. Initially horrified, the fear of being caught gives her a rush that she hasn't felt in a long time. Over a few months, she gradually increases the amount of her shoplifting, developing a range of tricks to avoid detection until - inevitably - she is caught. Taken to a police station, it all suddenly becomes horribly real: she is a criminal, and treated as such. But will she be able to hide this fact from Steve..?

With his high-flying sister Theresa perennially busy, postman Paul has always been happy to be there for his parents, and with mum Shirley now in long-term care, she and dad Tommy need Paul and his wife Lisa more than ever. When Shirley asks Paul to move in with Tommy in the big family home, it seems to make sense for everyone; Paul, Lisa and their two boys are cramped in their tiny rented house. But Lisa worries about the long term - when both parents have died, they'll have to move out or find the money on a postman's pension to buy out Theresa. No problem, Tommy says; he'll just sign the house over to Paul and Lisa - he believes Theresa won't mind, as she has her own big house in Cheshire worth twice as much. But when Theresa visits, she is horrified; she has worked hard all her life, and her reward is to lose her share of the family home..? Upset, as a parting shot, Theresa tells Paul a family secret that turns his world upside down.

Fourteen-year-old Beth suddenly stops talking. She won't talk in school; she won't talk at home. Her mum Louise and dad Greg are horrified, not least because it took the school to point out her silence, lost in the daily whirl of family life. But Beth discovers a warped power in her silence: geeky Beth now has kudos. Her aunt Toni reckons she'll be ok in time, but her brother Patrick just wishes she'd get over herself. When even the psychologist is met wth silence, each family member starts to panic that the silence is a result of something they've done, resulting in a stream of confessions that Beth wishes she'd never heard. Now Beth knows what she knows, it is too hard to break the silence, until events at a family meal reveal secrets too big to keep hidden. But could Beth's silence finally provide a way for them all to start talking..?
