NotesWhen her husband has a nervous breakdown the wife struggles to keep things going. You can't make much of a film about someone in a catatonic trance. So instead you show the wife's difficulties. And to cast an actor to play someone in a catatonic trance isn't difficult in TV Film world. And in TV film world you don't get a job looking in Situations Vacant but through a friend. In fact the wife gets the job of associate producer though she has no experience. It must be like that in real TV world. Of course she has an affair with a guy from work. The husband is seen for about ten times and less than a minute each time so there is no revelation about his condition.
