Set in the pastoral English town of Clatterford, this gently humorous sitcom centers on the eclectic members of the Women's Guild, who gather to gossip, trace their family trees and help one another out of jams. With grave purpose, Eileen Pike (Maggie Steed) heads the guild, which also includes schizophrenic Rosie Bales (Dawn French) and her alter ego, and loose-lipped Tippi Haddem (Pauline McLynn), who has a nasty habit of talking out of turn.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this British comedy pokes good-natured fun at small-town life and an eccentric circle of gossipy women. A main character deals with the death of her husband and the change of direction her life takes in the aftermath. Strong language is sporadic, and body-related humor includes medical ailments like anal polyps and touchy subjects like Pap tests, all of which are played for laughs. While there's little content that's iffy for teens, kids may not appreciate the affectionate, character-based comedy the same way that adults (mainly women) will.

Sexual Content

Occasional body humor includes comments like "Is it an itchy anus?" and mention of medical topics like Pap and urine tests.


Not applicable


Infrequent use of "damn," "hell," and "s--t."

Social Behavior

The series exaggerates personality quirks and one character's mental health disorder, which resembles multiple personalities.


Rarely, something like a cell phone or iPod makes an appearance.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults sometimes frequent the neighborhood pub for a drink or two. Conversational drug references include mention of roaches and skunks.
