Tropical Moon Over Dorking
An Limehouse production for Channel 4
On a beautiful tropical beach, Rex, an incredibly handsome brain surgeon and Camilla, an impossibly beautiful ballerina, declare their undying love for each other. But the course of true love never runs smoothly, and Rex and Camilla's problems can only be solved in Dorking, where Myra Foster, their creator, sits at her word processor and tries to write her latest romantic novel. But real life has a nasty habit of intruding on Myra's world of chaste heroines and heroes.
