Solo

Show Summary

Gemma Palmer is 30 years old, and fed up with being betrayed and taken for granted. She finds out that her boyfriend, Danny, has been having an affair with her friend, Gloria, and decides that this is the last straw. She throws Danny out, tells Gloria to go jump in a lake, and tells off all the people who have been treating her like a doormat. Then she quits her boring job at a estate agent's office. From now on, she's going solo. At least, that is her firm intention. As in her other sitcoms (Liver Birds, Butterflies, Bread), Carla Lane uses the "situation" here as a vehicle for character portrayal (rather than development). Lyrical, reflective moments of whimsical and wry dialogue succeed each other episodically.
