EOH Group 2

Welcome to the Edge of Heaven! This comedy drama series charts the lives of the Taylor-Chatterjees at Margate’s finest (and indeed only) 80s themed B&B – run by Wham! loving Judy (Camille Coduri), husband and breakfast enthusiast Tandeep (Nitin Kundra), and her two grown-up kids, sofa salesman Alfie (Blake Harrison) and his de-mobbed soldier sister Ann-Marie (Laura Checkley).

Alfie is a man with his life and future all planned out for him, until his fiancée Carly (Justine Cain) leaves him at the altar. Carly’s best friend is Michelle (Louisa Lytton), a sweet girl who’s always had a soft spot for Alfie. Nanny Mo is Alfie’s smart as a tack grandmother (Marcia Warren), who lives with his two gay Uncles, both called Gary (Adrian Scarborough and Robert Evans). Written and created by Robert Evans, Edge of Heaven is guaranteed to brighten up your TV screen.
