Maeve (Dervla Kirwan, Ballykissangel) and Mark (Stephen Tompkinson, Wild at Heart) meet in London under unusual circumstances: both are recently deceased. Maeve was killed by a hit-and-run driver, and Mark died during a routine surgery while his wife was giving birth to their son. The two mismatched souls find themselves still in this world, thrown together in a weird and wonderful afterlife.
This touching and gently humorous British drama explores what it means to have a chance to help—or hinder—those left behind. Maeve’s lover wasn’t just cheating on his wife; he was also cheating on Maeve. Mark was happily married, but he left his wife and children penniless. In this afterlife, the dead can’t talk to those they knew when alive, but they can speak freely with strangers. Will Maeve and Mark be able to right past wrongs and repair relationships? What will they learn about each other, and themselves?
Seen on public television, this poignant drama also stars Peter O’Brien (Queer as Folk), David Bradley (Harry Potter), and Callum Blue (Dead Like Me).
