It’s the first ever transgender rom-com, groundbreaking in its presentation of a trans woman who is at the heart of its story. Now, Boy Meets Girl, one of the most talked about TV series of 2015, arrives on DVD on 12 October 2015 from RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn Label, following its run on BBC Two.
We have five copies of this heart-warming six-part comedy up for grabs.
Leo (Harry Hepple) is having a bad day. He’s been fired (again) and is being given a hard time about it by his Mum (Denise Welch). And then, to make matters worse, he ends up playing gooseberry to his younger brother on their night out together. Leo’s about to write the day off as one to forget but then he bumps into Judy (Rebecca Root) and finds himself deeply attracted to this surprising and beguiling woman.
They bond over drinks and, unfazed by the fact that there’s clearly a bit of an age gap between them, as well as the fact that Judy is transgender, they arrange to meet the following evening. Before long, they’re going steady, but family matters – Judy’s eccentric often embarrassing family and Leo’s possessive mother, ensure it’s not an easy ride.
