Episode 4

Can Ken and Keith's whippets win the talent night? Plus it's scampi fries for Rod and Tanya. With Sheila Hancock. From July 2010.

Sheila Hancock heads a stunning cast including Mackenzie Crook, Penelope Wilton, Felicity Montagu and Kevin Eldon. This is a clever, funny and touching series about a small town in the middle of Northamptonshire as it prepares for a talent night. It is written by and also stars Katherine Jakeways.

It's Town Talent Night at last and Ken and Keith are busy fine-tuning their pet whippets' dance routine.

Everyone nervously awaits the arrival of the celebrity judge Lady Ballantyne who is unfortunately in the spotlight for being the most recent Royal racist.

Jan does her last minute preparations for her trip to Australia. Will she be going alone or could she possibly dare to dream that Jonathan might join her at the last minute?

And finally supermarket manager Rod (Mackenzie Crook) gets to take Tanya from till 4 on a date. The true measure of success will be how many packets of scampi fries they consume. Will it be just the one? Or perhaps too many to count?

Written by Katherine Jakeways.
Produced by Claire Jones.
