Joe and Sarah Marriot is a pair of European campers who have pitched their tent for a little R & R at a campsite in France. Miranda Richardson stars in Andrew Davies' glorious comedy about a group of Brits on holiday in France, and the sexual and emotional tensions simmering just below the surface.

The other families that have come to the site on holiday provide great comedy and plenty of people watching for the "perfect" Marriots. Of course, you'd expect hilarity from characters dubbed the Fitness Family, Mr. and Mrs. Topless, Fatty Granada, and the In-the-Trades. But the Marriots' enjoyment of observing the outside world turns inward when the entrance of Early Bird, a free-spirited female, shakes up their little nest.
