Movie Picture

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.
