Playing the Field was a BBC drama series about a woman's amateur soccer team. Set in the North of England, we meet the team as Theresa is about to get married, with most of her teammates as bridesmaids. It doesn't go quite as expected but we are quickly introduced to the different women who come from all walks of life. And we discover that Theresa's sister Jo, the best player on the team, is actually her daughter she had when she was 15 and forced by her mother to disavow.
Each episode focuses on a different character, with a running storyline about the team's run for the championship. Affairs are conducted, secrets revealed, friendships tested, and oh yes, there's a game played each week. Solid material, nicely acted, with men reduced to mere supporting characters pretty much.
