David Tennant, Sarah Alexander and Mark Bonnar star in all three series of the bittersweet comedy about shared parenting

'Razor-sharp dialogue, disarming charm and excellent cast' - Radio Times

Tangled love lives, secret affairs, frozen eggs and roving eyes - it's time to meet the Millers!

The Go-Betweenies takes a candid look at a divorced North London family through the prism of two siblings (14-year-old Lucy and 10-year-old Tom) who schlep with varying degrees of enthusiasm between two sets of homes: Mum's comfy Highgate house and Dad's rackety new rental on the Holloway Road.

Mimi and Joe are determined to be double, not single, parents: supportive, hands-on and as good as any traditional set-up - and with five divorces between them, they've certainly had enough practice. Joe's given up the booze and done the Twelve Steps, and Mimi's hoping her third marriage, to American playwright Harry, will soon get started. It's all going wonderfully well - so why is Lucy hopped up on energy drinks, while Tom's obsessed with counting sultanas?

As the kids deal with befriending losers, unfortunate crushes, heartbreak and existential crises, their parents find themselves grappling with their feelings for each other - not to mention a new, hairy Gobetweenie...

Written by Marcella Evaristi, The Go-Betweenies stars David Tennant and Mark Bonnar as Joe, Sarah Alexander as Mimi, Phoebe Abbott as Lucy and Finlay Christie as Tom, with a fantastic ensemble cast including Stuart Milligan, Morwenna Banks, Doon Mackichan, David Troughton and Charlotte Ritchie.
