All six episodes of the BBC sitcom starring Clive Swift and Roger Lloyd-Pack. Elderly divorced man Roy (Swift) shares his suburban home with his housemate, Tom (Lloyd-Pack). The two men spend their days growing old disgracefully and lusting after their neighbour Sally (Jane Asher). Episodes are: 'Sally's Party', 'The Therapist', 'Marriage', 'The Old Flame', 'The Croft' and 'Courtesan'.
From the writers of Peep Show and The Thick of It comes a new comedy about settling into old age with style. Housemates Tom and Roy are the ying to each other's yang. Roy is well-read, organised, clean and sensitive. Tom, well, isn't. As both of them settle into retirement, they are faced with the prospect of life simply not turning out quite how they imagined. Together, however, they manage to muddle through life - answering the important questions that retirement poses. Questions involving religion, true-love and precisely how early is too early to start drinking in the day. Original, funny and only a little distasteful - this new comedy takes a fresh look at retirement and the joys of growing old disgracefully.

Clive Swift (Keeping Up Appearances) and Roger Lloyd Pack (Only Fools and Horses) are briliant in this and it is a joy to watch them on screen together.
The supporting characters are 'growers' too, at first I wasn't too sure but they all contribute to the story well. The opening them tune also grows on you the more you watch it. Everything about the show is positive.
It may not be a laugh a minute sitcom, buut there are plenty of laughs through out, and this is the closest you'll get to a traditional sitcom nowadays. A must see.
