Claire and Leigh

Isy helps out Matlock's new chef and her Elvis impersonator admirer, while looking for signs in her own love life. From April 2013.

Isy Suttie (Dobby from Channel 4's Peep Show and double British Comedy Award nominee) returns to BBC Radio 4 with these unique tales, recounting a series of love stories affecting people she's known throughout her life, told partly through song.

Sometimes Isy has merely observed other people's love lives; quite often she's intervened, changing the action dramatically - for better or worse. Intertwined within these stories are related real life anecdotes from Isy's own, often disastrous, love life.

In this third episode, Isy looks for signs as to whether her relationship with a poet can survive despite semantic differences, while she lends a helping hand to Matlock's new chef Claire and her Elvis impersonator admirer Leigh.

With her multi-character and vocal skills, plus her guitar, Isy creates a hilarious and deeply moving world, sharing with us her lessons in life and love.
