Product Overview

Julia Davis heads an impressive cast in Nighty Night, a dark comedy/drama series which she wrote for the BBC. The series could be described as a West Country version of Fatal Attraction. It centres on Jill, a woman with an obsession, who is the co-owner of a suburban beauty salon. She has other things on her mind, though, namely the handsome doctor who lives in the house opposite with his wife, a wheelchair user. Jill claims her hospitalised husband is dying of a terminal illness and so descends on the life of the unfortunate couple... and refuses to leave.

Obsessed with her neighbor, Don (Angus Deayton), Jill attempts to woo him away from his disabled wife, Cath (Rebecca Front). Dark, twisted comedy abounds over the resulting six episodes of the show, which was written by Davis and produced by Steve Coogan's (24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE) production company, Baby Cow.
