The show follows members of the Women’s Institute in rural Cheshire.
Everyone in the town has a secret, and everyone’s secret is pretty horrible. One woman? A lesbian. Which is in fact illegal at the time. But she befriends a corrupt accountant who lied about being married to her dead husband. The friends who lie about love together, I guess…
The show was canceled after season two, so we never found out if Teresa sorted out her beard husband was worth it or not.
