Drag, starting early and Green Wing.

1. A child at the farmers' market is pulling a shoebox on a string. Inside the shoebox is a greyish toy animal.

2. A father letting his little boy press the buttons on the cashpoint.

3. Caroline and Ian introduce me to Green Wing -- it's surreal and it's about hospitals. The entire cast seems to be stuck in a love polygon that will never be resolved to anyone's satisfaction. I think the misanthropic HR woman jogging through the dining room shouting 'that's not for you, fatty' and smashing trays out of people's hands was what caught me. Or possibly the imaging consultant being forced to apologise to an officeful of managers after his nuisance call was put on speakerphone. Or maybe lovelorn Dr Caroline Todd and her quest to help the gorgeous Mac remember that they were dating before he went into a coma at the end of the last series.
