A Many Splintered Thing BBC Sitcom, Alan Davies

In sitcom A Many Splintered Thing, married jingle writer Russel Boyd (Alan Davies) is having an affair with the much younger Elly (Kate Ashfield). Russel is filled with guilt over his affair but is basically obsessed with Elly. Luis (Vic McGuire) was Russel’s best friend and Alistair Cranwell (Paul Trussell) was his dodgy agent.
