Kiss Me Kate (BBC Sitcom, Caroline Quentin, Amanda Holden)



BBC sitcom Kiss Me Kate detailed episodes in the mainly work based life of counselor Kate Salinger (Caroline Quentin) and her drippy, permanently depressed business partner Douglas (Chris Langham). Mel (Amanda Holden) was the hare brained secretary and the dense Craig (Darren Boyd) ran a travel agency from the same building and had a crush on Kate although when that is not reciprocated he switches his attentions to Mel.

Interestingly Douglas’s surname was Fielding in the first season and Cameron thereafter. Bill Nighy popped up as Douglas’s brother Iain in season two and developed a love interest with Kate.
