Deadline looming, lovelorn romance writer Anna has met a real-live man. Stars Samantha Bond and Hugh Bonneville. From June 2000.

Lovelorn romance writer Anna is up against a deadline for her latest potboiler, a tale of love, suffering and jealousy. But her creative juices don't seem to be flowing as, after years of having a purely fictional love-life, she's met a real-live man.

She's also constantly thwarted by her characters, who keep leaping off the page into her living room to challenge her about their plotlines.

Michelle Read's 4-part comedy-drama stars Samantha Bond as Anna, Hugh Bonneville as Brian, Beth Chambers as Deirdre, Adjoa Andoh as the Fertility Doll and Michael Fenton Stevens as The Book.

Producer: Dawn Ellis

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in June 2000.
