Snap: Clean break or clean slate?
A BBC Radio 4 comedy drama
All three series of the BBC sitcom about a couple who've split up, but can't quite call it quits
When two people have history, how can they ever be history? That's the question facing Molly and Doug, who are separating after 16 years of marriage. He's moving out (albeit a mere three streets away), and she's moving on (just as soon as she can get her wedding ring off) - only somehow, they can't seem to stay away from one another.
Breaking up would be so much easier if it wasn't for the woes of their two teenage children, Doug's elderly mum's interference, and the sneaking suspicion that perhaps they shouldn't be divorcing at all.... Will the couple get closure and accept that their relationship is over, or can they find a way to rebuild their lives together?
Written by acclaimed scriptwriter Paul Mendelson (May to December, My Hero), this sparkling romantic comedy stars Rebecca Lacey as Molly and Paul Venables as Doug, with a full cast including Rebecca Front, Samantha Spiro and Robin Weaver.
