SANDYLANDS 2 is written by Martin Collins and Alex Finch for GOLD and King Bert Productions.

After taking to the high seas in a pedalo to escape the clutches of insurance investigator, the One Eyed Man, Emily and Les return home. It’s there they discover Emily’s estranged mother, cruise ship entertainer Donna Vegas, standing in Les’s front room. Emily isn’t exactly impressed that her mother has turned up out of the blue and needs to decide if she can trust her.

Les and Donna can’t deny their attraction to each other and soon Donna is in on Les’s life insurance scam and acting like the perfect mother. Unfortunately, Emily doesn’t know what to believe. Is Donna only sticking around for the money?
