"Mr Wonderful" is the story of Norma Green, a middle-aged, working class woman who conceals a desperate sense of wasted time beneath her strong-willed exterior. Working in a factory and caring for her bed-ridden mother, who is on the verge of Alzheimer's Disease, she is trying to find her Mr Wonderful by using a dating agency.

She dates Eric Box, a mind numbing bore and DIY shop owner who has an encyclopaedic knowledge of his wares, then Geoff Lazenby, an erudite, stylish man whose urbane demeanour conceals a massive ego. Her final date is with Lop Wink, a fanatical cyclist. There is intrigue when Norma's mother Phoebe, who dreads the day Norma will leave her for her Mr Wonderful, discovers the secrets of one of Norma's dates, leading her daughter to exact a fitting revenge...
