This could be a painfully unpleasant piece of exploitative voyeurism: cameras follow people with disabilities as they try to find love after signing up for a dating agency. But it’s actually quite touching and manages not to patronise Richard, Luke and Penny as they go on dates.
Richard, 37, has Asperger’s and wants romance, but only within a five-mile radius of his home. Luke has Tourette syndrome with exhausting tics and involuntary obscenities, and Penny is 3ft tall and in a wheelchair. Her ideal man is a tall police officer (she likes the uniform). They have first dates with varying degrees of success, but they are an engaging, optimistic and exacting trio.
Documentary following people with a range of restrictive conditions as they search for romance and experience the delights and pitfalls of blind dates, matchmaking and speed dating. Amateur radio enthusiast Richard has Asperger's syndrome, and has very particular demands of any potential partner, while trainee teacher Penny fears a genetic disorder that has made her bones extremely brittle will leave her struggling to keep up on a date. Meanwhile, stand-up comedian Luke travels from Merseyside to London to meet part-time receptionist Lucy, but fears his Tourette's syndrome may make conversation difficult.
