'Sublimely funny, touching series... a work of supreme craftsmanship' Radio Times

'Peppered with nostalgic 60s hits and especially written for the pair, it's an endearing portrait of exasperation, laced with hard won tolerance - and something like love.' The Guardian

'Treasure this one ... this series makes people laugh' Gillian Reynolds, Sunday Times

Joanna Lumley and Roger Allam return as the married couple who met in the Summer of Love and are still passionate about love, life, music - and each other.

With Roger approaching a big birthday, the couple reflect on growing older and all that it entails, from the increasing need to keep active to the ultimate question - to downsize, or not to downsize? However, their progress is hindered by still feeling the same as ever ... even if their friends have replaced technicolour for tweed and have never heard of Stormzy!

Along the way, there's also jealousy, talk of affairs, Roger's sleep-talking and the discovery of his 'baby whisperer' abilities - but underlying it all is this couple's long-lasting love for each other.

Created by award-winning comedy writer and journalist Jan Etherington, and based on her own long marriage to Gavin Petrie (with whom she wrote the hit radio and TV series Second Thoughts and Faith in the Future), this delightful comedy two-hander will resonate with couples of all ages.
