The Valerie Step

Real-time sitcom following the lives of a middle-aged couple during their first half-hour home from work. Roger is a botanist at the Winter Gardens and Val is a food technology teacher at a local school. With no children, the couple rely only on each other for distraction.

Val returns to the house to see how Roger's tribunal at work has gone. She reveals she is going to a dinner which Ian, a former colleague who fell in love with her and moved to New Zealand, is attending. Roger cynically reviews all things New Zealand has offered and points out the ignored plight of Sherpa Tenzing next to the celebrated Edmund Hillary.

Val is about to leave when something Roger does allows them both to summit their own particular Everest. There is just one snag, the result of his meeting with Esther from Legal.
