not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Welcome to the world of Lunch Monkeys, starring Nigel Havers (Brothers And Sisters) and Sian Reeves (Hope Springs, Cutting It and Northern Lights) with Steve John Shepherd (This Life) alongside a cast of new young talent. The administration department of personal injury law firm of Fox Cranford is a gathering place for school-leavers, no-hopers and general misfits – and if they monkey around till lunch, its guerrilla warfare in the office till dinner. Straight out of school, and into a job they don't want, Darrel, Kenny, Asif, Shelley and Tania are going nowhere fast. Looked down on by the solicitors they work for, they face constant criticism by their power hungry supervisor Gloria Stevens. Bored senseless for eight hours a day, the post room gang fill their time fighting, flirting, winding each other up and generally causing mayhem.
Boss Mike is driven nuts by new girl Shelley who takes a two hour lunch to get a tattoo. Office Manager Gloria is too lazy to do Shelley's induction and leaves it to Darrel - bad move.
Asif thinks an angry client wants to kill him with a death ray. Kenny tries to ask Tania out, but ends up trying to find spacepants and anyhow Tania might have AIDS, may be a lesbian and is possibly pregnant, but she definitely has a boyfriend.
Solicitor Charlie tries to persuade Tania to get rid of their baby. Down in the post room, Darrel thinks he is Jason Bourne and Asif thinks he is Jackie Chan. They have a fight and Darrel loses a client's cheque, but gains a pair of Gloria's pants.
The client who is owed the money is coming in to confront the boss, Mike. Asif has learnt hypnosis and puts Darrel in a trance to try and find the cheque - with alarming conseqeunces.
Shelley discovers that gambling is brilliant, which leads to an interesting discovery.
It is sweltering in the office and Asif's heart is on fire for solicitor Lee Ann, so to prove he has got what it takes he goes into business selling ice pops. With Shelley's help he starts making his fortune, while Darrel is convinced he is facing redundancy and uses alcohol to cope.
Kenny draws a picture of Tania naked, but trusting Asif to hide it is a really bad move, especially when Tania is suffering hormonal moodswings.
Darrel is appointed fire marshal in time for the safety officer's visit, but becomes a little over-zealous and tries to stop Mike from keeping warm.
Shelley brings her convict boyfriend Swanny into the office for some free soup and then loses him, with Kenny getting roped into the search. Asif becomes stressed while on his own in the post room.
Tania does some proper law work for Lee Ann, but is annoyed by her constant flirting with her fella Charlie, so she starts a fire, but finds out that his intentions are surprisingly honourable.
Darrel is surprised when an office temp takes a shine to him, but the course of true love fails to run smoothly. Gloria disciplines Tania for taking too many sickies, so Tania sues the firm for discriminating against her.
Mike has to deal with Tania's case, and also with Kenny, who is desperate to leave the firm and has an interview for a dream job but is undone by Asif's plan to help him get revenge on Fox Cranford before he goes.
Tania is in charge of the late night office move. Mike has promised her promotion if it goes well, but she gets stressed and annoys the team who go on strike and build a den. Shelley splits up with her boyfriend Swanny but gets back with him when he turns up at the office.
Kenny convinces Asif that the building is haunted by a serial killer caretaker - can he control his bladder in the face of fear? Tania's boyfriend Charlie is at a work do with beautiful colleague Lee Ann, but Kenny is suspicious.
