Watch: Wednesday TV - Me and Mrs Jones

Me and Mrs Jones is a prime-time BBC1 six-episode comedy series, which aired in October 2012. Last year I was captivated by its cleverly weaved script, written by Oriane Messina and Fay Rusling, and was surprised when it wasn't commissioned for a second series.

The talented and gushingly good looking Robert Sheehan (Misfits, The Borrowers) is the potential toyboy-cum-love interest to Sarah Alexander's divorced mother of two small girls. The plot revolves around the chaotic families and love lives of her and her ex-husband. 

Whilst superficial in parts, the tale adds a somewhat nuanced reflection on modern living, post-modern families and identity. The final episode ends ambiguously but will leave you wanting more. Isn't that the saying 'leave them wanting more'? In this case, I think it works.

Carpe diem xx
