Based on books by Faith Addis, 'Down To Earth' was a BBC1 drama series, beginning on August 6th, 2000, and initially featured Warren Clarke and Pauline Quirke (playing the author Faith Addis) as a couple looking to escape to the country in Devon, with their children.

Though generally a gentle series, 'Down To Earth' did have its tragic moments, especially when Clarke's character Brian died in 2003. From then on the main cast list changed regularly, with Ian Kelsey and Angela Griffin replacing Clarke and Ms. Quirke, before they themselves were replaced by Denise Welch and Ricky Tomlinson. The final episode was screened on March 6th, 2005.
