What's the Mystery Here?
Brad, the agent in question, is a seller of property - an Estate Agent (a Realtor in US English) - and he's not prone to scruples about his business or his clients. Kat is his more caring colleague, and between them, they're dealing with:-
Tanya an Essex beautician, with a tendency to overdo her own make-up.
Tanya's fiance, Kevin a mechanic.
Tall, sensible Ed a Police officer.
Daisy Ed's girlfriend.
The heavily pregnant Amanda.
Amanda's wife, Ali.
Yasmina a full-time home maker.
Tired bank clark, Matt, Yasmina's husband.
Richard, a wealthy retired businessman.
Patricia Richard's well-spoken wife.
The script also calls for a police radio announcer (probably a recording) because, as you might expect, there's a murder to be solved.
