Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 1
AIRED:
It is 1997 and Adrian Mole is back! This time, he is aged 30, a single father to William, aged almost 3, and on the verge of divorce from his Nigerian wife, Jo Jo. He is working as a chef in London's Soho district at the trendy restaurant Hoi Polloi where he serves mainly offal-related dishes to the rich and famous. He still dreams of his boyhood love, Pandora Braithwaite, now standing as a New Labour candidate in the district where Adrian's parents live. Pandora has a PhD and a desire to be Prime Minister one day. Adrian himself is certain that Tony Blair will win by a landslide and that Pandora will also win easily. All in all, things are moving along fairly steadily and all would be fine were it not for the fact that Adrian's mother, Pauline, and Pandora's father, Ivan, suddenly embark on an affair on the eve of the election.moreless

  • It's so good to have Adrian back on the screen again and equally good to see that he hasn't changed a bit!

    9.0
    The series opens on the eve of the May, 1997 British General Election. Most people are betting on a landslide victory for the charismatic Tony Blair and Adrian agrees, particularly as his one great love, Dr. Pandora Braithwaite, is running as a candidate for Mr. Blair's New Labour team.



    On top of all this, Adrian is a single parent to a two-year-old named William and is working at a fashionable London eatery called 'Hoi Polloi' where he cooks offal (mainly) for celebrity guests. He is still as much in love with Pandora as ever but that, unfortunately, is still going nowhere for him. To make matters worse, it seems more than likely that his mother, Pauline and Pandora's father, Ivan, are romantically involved!



    How will Adrian deal with all the strain? Watch and see, it's truly hilarious. Sue Townsend is a genius.moreless
