Sarah is deeply dissatisfied with her lot. Her marriage to the kindly but deeply boring Malcolm has long since failed to bring any spark to her life, and a brief relationship with a man called David, while ultimately unfulfilling, at least proves to her that she is not so unattractive that she cannot find happiness elsewhere.

Thinking of Leaving Your Husband is a four-part comedy drama by Charlotte Cory which explores a middle-aged woman's attempts to find herself a new romantic interest by joining an internet dating site. The series gives us two virtuoso acting performances by Lia Williams, who as Sarah, our heroine, appears in every scene, and Henry Goodman who not only plays Sarah's ex-husband Malcolm, but every one of her would-be lovers.

Sarah is distraught that she has been so deceived by her lying Dutchman. She is all for giving up the search to find a perfect partner. But Tania persuades her, for self-interested reasons, to go on a 'speed-dating' evening, where Sarah finally meets Tony, the mathematics professor and lover of ballroom dancing, whom she knows on the internet as 'Midnight Magic'. They are immediately attracted to each other - but leave without exchanging contact numbers and Sarah finds that Tania has wiped her details from the internet dating site. What are the mathematical chances of Sarah and Tony ever meeting again?
