36.1 The Serpent's Tooth Dentist Ben Harper (Robert Lindsay) is undergoing a mid-life crisis, and trying to cope with the bizarre reality of raising teenage children. His wife, witty Susan (Zoe Wanamaker) seems quite happy, and enjoys her job as a London tour guide. However, her ability to find her way around the kitchen is rather less successful. Their still-loving marriage keeps moving along. Their three children--Nick, Janey, and Michael--are as different as chalk and cheese. Charming Nick, 19 (Kris Marshall), is on his gap year, but doesn't get much further than the sofa or job centre; fashionable Janey (Daniela Denby-Ashe) is as sharp as a tack, and 16 going on 25; while Michael (Gabriel Thomson) is a very bright, computer-nerdish 12-year-old, who is just discovering girls. At work, Ben is aided, just, by his hygienist Brigitte (Daisy Donovan--series one) and, later, by his son, Nick. The first episode features interesting communication by e-mail; and issues involving dentistry loyalty!
