By Katherine Jakeways

Romantic comedy about love, infidelity and accidental pregnancy.

The months of excitement and anticipation are about to come to an end, but Sam has something to confess. Who will Bayley choose to have at her side for the birth - Sam or Rose?

Forty Weeks tells the story of a pregnancy, from conception to birth. It's a love story between two people, just not the two people who are having the baby.

Writer Katherine Jakeways (North by Northamptonshire) is described by The Radio Times as the 'new Victoria Wood' saying "her character comedy is so acutely observed and so sharp that it's in danger of causing permanent injury." Starring Rebecca Humphries (Big Bad World), Matthew Baynton (The Wrong Mans), Kimberley Nixon (Fresh Meat) and Julia Deakin (I'm Alan Partridge).

Directed by James Robinson
A BBC Cymru Wales Production.
