Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Marion and Geoff were never seen in the British comedy-drama series bearing their names. Instead, the focus was (literally) upon Keith Barrett (Rob Brydon), a neurotic London cabbie. Installing a video camera on the dashboard of his cab, Keith poured out his troubles in long, rambling, self-pitying monologues. The hero's rants generally centered upon the fact that his wife Marion had run off with his so-called pal Geoff. Despite the fact that Marion and Geoff were now married, the delusional Keith held out hope that he'd win back his ex-spouse's affections someday, somehow. Served up in ten ten-minute portions by BBC2 from September 26 to November 28, 2000, Marion and Geoff was followed in 2001 by a feature-length "prequel," A Small Summer Party.
