Puppy Love

Series 1 - Episode 4



Naomi is at the vet’s, keen to get Charlie, her uncontrollable lab, neutered, while Nana V is convinced something’s amiss with her mutt, No Name. But could No Name actually have detected a health problem in V? These two women, divided by class and background, keep bumping into each other, but there are now signs that they might have more in common than dogs, teenage children and Naomi’s charity Future’Z.

This is a ramshackle but charming episode, with one or two honking laughs, but at its heart is the sad story of an old hound on his last legs. Are Naomi and V about to bond?


It is a big day for Naomi as charity trustee Jepherson Denomer arrives on a fact-finding mission, and she shows him what has been achieved in the local area. However, things do not go quite to plan when his car gets stuck in Nana V's muddy yard and his exhaust pipe breaks. Meanwhile, Nana V is concerned that something is wrong with her dog No Name. Comedy, based in a dog training class on the Wirral, written by and starring Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine.
