WHO’S WHO IN MOTH­ER­LAND

Daily Mail Weekend Magazine - - NEWS -

STAY-AT-HOME DAD KEVIN (Paul Ready) Clue­less Kevin (left) thinks that be­ing friendly is enough to get ac­cepted, but he’s way out of his depth among the yummy mum­mies who in­habit mid­dle-class Lon­don.

SIN­GLE MUM LIZ (Diane Mor­gan) Her chil­dren run feral and she’s slob­bish but kind. Liz has been os­tracised by the other moth­ers as pun­ish­ment for sleep­ing with one of their hus­bands... two decades ago.

HA­RASSED WORK­ING MUM JU­LIA (Anna Maxwell Martin) She never has enough time to be or­gan­ised. On the school run she’ll be sort­ing a busi­ness deal on the phone, comb­ing her hair and stop­ping her chil­dren fight­ing.

AL­PHA MUM AMANDA (Lucy Punch) The queen bee of the school gates, she will judge you loudly and de­cides who is al­lowed on the hal­lowed ta­ble at the cafe nearby. But she also has in­se­cu­ri­ties which run deep.

BETA MUM ANNE (Philippa Dunne) Sec­ond in the peck­ing or­der be­low queen bee Amanda, Anne (left) had a hor­ri­ble time as a child in the play­ground her­self and now is mainly just grate­ful if some­one talks to her.
