Watch Boy Meets Girl

Boy Meets Girl is a British ITV comedy-drama television mini-series. Meet the boy, Danny Reed ( Martin Freeman) a down-on-his-luck and disillusioned superstore employee. Meet the girl, rich fashion journalist Veronica Burton (Rachael Stirling). These two very different people are literally brought together when one fateful day lightening strikes, causing them to switch bodies.

The show is peopled with a number of other interesting side characters. There are Danny's coworkers Fiona (Angela Griffith) and Pete (Marshall Lancaster), Veronica's boyfriend Jay (Paterson Joseph), Veronica's lover Ali (James Lance) and her lover's girlfriend Siobhan (Tamzin Malleson). Both Danny and Veronica have their individual struggles and successes in this new situation. The two experience a lot walking in someone else's skin. You will face their double-life and learn valuable life lessons with them. The deepest moral of the show: sometimes you don't know the real value of what you have until you don't have it any more.
