Synopsis

 

Mike Stott's exquisite comedy about possibly the North of England's most appalling estate agents, set in the fictional Pennine village of Boggart's Bridge

Episode 1

Meet Barr Bunn, of Bunn and Co estate agents, based in a quiet corner of a small Pennine town.Barry has survived his annual holiday with Mrs Bunn, and on his first day back in the office is relishing the grind, misery and the tedium which will come as such a welcome relief from the past 14 days.

 

Episode 2

Another week, another difficult client for the staff of Bunn & Co, estate agents. Phil Fishwick is looking for a house. Well, less of a house more of a dump, really. Undeterred by years of training in the fine art of misrepresentation, Barry Bunn rises to the challenge.

 

Episode 3

The full impact of new technology is felt by Bunn and Co, estate agents, when Tracey discovers an unusual website featuring men and camels. But can the awesome power of the world-wide web be harnessed to improve dwindling property sales in the Pennines?

 

Episode 4

Barry enters dangerous territory when he plans to compete with property prices in the South. But it seems that his dreams of million-pound sales might be about to come true when a blast from the past rocks up in Boggartis Bridge.

Can this Jed Thrust, the acclaimed king of Gunk-Rock, really be Harvey Boocock, the scruffy kid from the council estate that Barry used to tease at school? Any doubts Barry might have about him are soon allayed by the £1 million Jed has to spend on a house, but can Barry provide what he is looking for before Collette's husband catches up with him to discuss what exactly is going on between Barry and Collette?

 

Episode 5

Another day, another tricky customer for Barry Bunn; an undertaker addicted to his work proves problematic when it comes to showing prospective buyers around his property. Barry and Collette finally admit to their feelings for one another but, when Barry forgets to book the hotel for their romantic evening together, finding a place where they can be alone seems impossible.
