Brief En­coun­ters ITV, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

This new drama se­ries is tak­ing us back to the 1980s, long be­fore Fifty Shades of Grey and Sex and the City, to the days when the idea of par­ties sell­ing ex­otic un­der­wear and 'mar­i­tal aids’ was highly risqué – and also, it turns out, po­ten­tially lifechang­ing. So­phie Rundle heads an im­pres­sive cast as Stephanie, a cleaner who sees the par­ties as a way to raise some much-needed cash. Her hus­band Terry (Karl Davies) doesn’t ap­prove, but Steph de­cides to go ahead any­way, en­cour­aged by her new friend Nita (An­gela Grif­fin).
