Collected edition of all four series of the British telvision comedy drama, written by Carla Lane. Ria (Wendy Craig) is the long-suffering wife of detatched dentist Ben (Geoffrey Palmer), and mother to Adam (Nicholas Lyndhurst) and Russell (Andrew Hall). Bored with her mundane life, Ria fantasises about running away and becoming a free spirit, something that seems possible when she meets handsome businessman Leonard (Bruce Montague). But somehow the expected affair never happens, and Ria is left to ponder the meaning of her life while tending to her family.
