Are you a good person?
London GP Katie Carr always thought she was. With her husband David making a living as 'The Angriest Man in Holloway', she figured she could put up with anything. Until, that is, David meets DJ Goodnews and becomes a good person too. A far-too-good person who starts committing crimes of charity like taking in the homeless and giving their kids' toys away.
Suddenly Katie's feeling very bad about herself, and thinking that if charity begins at home, then maybe it's time to move . . .
