In this the 3rd series of 'How Does That Make You Feel?' Martha's clients have made few changes to their circumstances.

Richard Fallon MP, (ROGER ALLAM) is still convinced promotion to the front bench is being denied him because of his obese son and an uncaring wife.
Caroline, (REBECCA SAIRE) is also evading a life of unbearable ordinariness by trying to persuade her 13 years old son to prepare to be Prime Minister.
There's Philip, who insists he isn't facing a crisis since his demotion from Good Morning Norfolk to a shopping channel. And Howard (TIM McINNERNY) a chef who's finally managed to encourage his 33 year old son to move out only to discover that his real problem lies with his fantasist wife, Helen.
