Plot Synopsis

Fanny and Elvis

Set in the Yorkshire town of Hebden, Kate and Dave meet when Kate bends Dave’s pride and joy – his Jag. Following a row in a pub car park they then find their respective partners having an affair. Kate is a struggling novelist, as her financial situation progressively worsens, used car salesman Dave, who she still owes money to for the repairs to his car, suggests that he takes a room in her house and she repay him in kind! She has no choice but to agree. When Kate is told by her doctor that the biological clock is ticking and about to go off, she decides that her life will only be complete when she has a baby – but should she choose to be the sperm donor; loudmouthed misogynist Dave, her gay lodger Andrew (Ben Daniels) or her estranged partner Rob (David Morrissey)?
