    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Cal: Every other candidate for that job was more experienced and qualified than Sonia Baker!
        Foster: So? You lot got jobs when there were better against you. Sometimes it's an economic compromise.

      • Foster: (having invited everybody at the office to the pub) Only people with expense accounts allowed in the lift!

      • Cal: You're worried about Karen and Louis.
        Anne: They know me and Stephen will probably get divorced.
        Cal: Probably?
        Anne: That's what you do with kids. You keep telling them 'probably' until they get to terms with inevitabilities. It's not a lie.

    • NOTES (1)

      • The hotel scenes were filmed in a studio. John Simm has said that it was a pleasure to work with Marc Warren on these scenes. However the actual filming was a very intense time for the actors and crew involved.
