At Home With The Braithwaites (ITV 2000-2003, Amanda Redman, Peter Davison)

Published

on

Comedy drama series At Home With The Braithwaites saw 40 year old housewife Alison Braithwaite win 38 million pounds on the first Euro lottery. She decides not to tell her obnoxious family and sets up a business to use the money for good causes.

Season three saw Alison having to pay back all her lottery winnings when it is discovered by the lottery authorities that underage Charlotte originally purchased the ticket. They have to move back to their old house and she has to go to work in a supermarket.

A bit disappointingly in the final 10 minutes of the third series an out-of-the-blue legal loophole was discovered that allowed them to get their millions back. In the fourth and final season, Alison and David get divorced and he wants half the money; and Megan dies in a bizarre accident in the bath.
