Meet Jill, the unhinged owner of a small town beauty salon, and enter her dysfunctional world. Pretending that her hospitalised husband is dying, Jill is on a mission to find a man. She joins the "Lassoo the Moon" Dating Agency, but when her dates don't come up to scratch, she sets her sights on her neighbour Don, a doctor, and develops a very unhealthy obsession about him. Moving in to 'nurse' his terminally ill wife, she is determined to seduce him and bring their marriage to a grinding halt... by ANY means necessary. So will she get her man in the end?
The second series of Nighty Night finds Jill (Julia Davis) still obsessed with Don (Angus Deayton) and travelling to Cornwall to find him. Jill discovers the new-age health centre where Don and Cath (Rebecca Front)--under the wing of hippy therapist Jacques--are trying to rebuild their relationship. The multi-award winning success of the first series has led to a second series unafraid to take its black humour into areas of bad taste, while retaining its comedic edge. Julia Davis gives a compelling performance as the glamorous, self-absorbed sociopath Jill, who manipulates everyone she comes across in order to get her way.
