Chance in a Million

In this sitcom written by Andrew Norriss and Richard Fegen, our protagonist Tom Chance (Simon Callow), seems to be a magnet for the strangest of situations. But does Tom notice? Not a smidge! While the universe plays pranks on him left, right, and centre, Tom is often off in his own world. Enter Alison Little (Brenda Blethyn), Tom’s endlessly patient girlfriend, who fatefully stumbles into his life. While Tom’s bashfulness might have him tiptoeing around her, Alison’s already head over heels from the get-go, eagerly waiting for their friendship to take a steamier turn!
