In this superbly funny and deeply human series from Carla Lane (Bread, Butterflies, The Liver Birds), Solo finds Felicity Kendal in the role of Gemma Palmer, a passionate and confused thirty year old.
On discovering that her live-in boyfriend Danny (Stephen Moore) has been having an affair with her best friend, she throws him out and decides to live life on her own, independent and free. But keeping Danny out of her life and staying unfettered turns out to be much harder than she expected.
Series One follows Gemma's struggle to shake Danny loose from her life and her heart where he's more difficult to dislodge. Meanwhile, in the room upstairs two flatmates, Bernadette and Josie, debate dating, romance, love and marriage.
In Series Two, a fully freed-up Gemma finds herself back in the dating world and making friends with a new neighbour, Sebastian, whose close friendship and reckless love life runs on parallel - and occasionally bumping - lines. With Gemma's mother always on hand to dispense guidance, support and tales of her own love life, Solo uncovers the many surprising layers of dependence that independence brings.
