Who Gets The Dog? (ITV 2007, Kevin Whately, Alison Steadman)

In drama Who Gets The Dog? Middle-aged Jack and Jenny appear to have it all: solid jobs, a great home and a loving daughter, Claire.

But under the surface their marriage is at breaking point, and the final straw comes when Jenny discovers Jack has been having an affair.

Their friends advise them strongly against getting solicitors involved, but both are pushed into it by the actions of the other. Jenny hires the dynamic, sexy Tara Walker and Jack hires Steve Hollister, a young hotshot from a rival firm.

Tara and Steve meet at a Law Society event and are immediately attracted to each other. Their romantic interest is sharpened when they discover they are representing opposing clients.

The battleground of Jack and Jenny’s divorce becomes the platform on which Steve and Tara flirt. They make a bet on the outcome: whoever loses the divorce case will pay for a weekend away.

Unaware of the behind-the-scenes machinations of their solicitors, Jack and Jenny experience the pain of their lives being torn apart as their past mistakes are scrutinised. Even Bounder, the family dog is drawn into the conflict.
