A series about becoming somebody new when all you feel like doing is becoming somebody old.

'Single' is a word Sarah never thought she'd need to use again. But then her husband, Paul, left her and their two teenage kids and everything changed. What do you do when you thought you were set for life and suddenly discover that you're wrong?<br/>

The series follows, in part, Sarah and Paul's very different responses to their separation and divorce. Two different journeys from the same starting point: a broken marriage after a messy six month 'trial' separation.<br/>

How do you interact with the world when you have been one half of a couple for a decade or more and now you have to face every aspect of your life alone? Every important event of the last 20 years has been shared, a shared experience; it hasn't just happened to 'me', it's happened to 'us'. Then you turn around and you're 42 years old but you haven't been alone like this since you were 22. And emotionally that's about how old you feel, that's how prepared you are, except without the blind confidence of the very foolish and the very young. Now you've got two kids, a mortgage, a tough job and your arms have started to look like your mum's.<br/>

With Sarah and Paul established as the central characters, their family, friends and work colleagues form the core characters we encounter each week. Friends like Mark, never committed to a long-term relationship but who knows he's on the verge of becoming the sad man at the disco. And Sarah's new lodger, Julie, who has been divorced for a year but still hasn't summoned up the courage to tell her parents.
