David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Liz Carling (Casualty) star in the sitcom about a young couple, Daniel and Lucy, and their circle of friends.
In the first series, Lucy sets up Daniel's party, but their mates seem too busy with kids. Then, when a top author gets writer's block, Lucy and Daniel get landed with an unwelcome guest. In the third episode, Daniel and Lucy's plans for a quiet weekend are hit by a stream of unplanned visitors and are later hit by other people's baby blues. Is poker really the answer? Lucy's up for promotion, but Katie can't decide on naming her baby. And in the last episode, when they're asked to be godparents, Lucy's thrilled. The same can't be said for Dan, however. This series was first broadcast in 2001.

I love love love this series and really wish there were more than 3 made - love the storyline and it's really believable - can't recommend enough
nothing like a good thriller to quicken the pulse
funny, witty, realistic
Daniel and Lucy's relationship
all of it, the interaction, sound effects, like watching a play
I've been an audiobook fan since I was in my teens. I like listening to a large variety of stories. A great way to refresh a favourite story
The delivery of a radio play doesn't always work as well upon reading it.
Remember the joy is to able to give them back
I wondered how I missed this play the first time. On radio
An total joy. David Tennant and Liz Carlye are spot on in their delivery.
As I am a single income and no kids yet. I can honestly say that stories episodes told in this story maybe the extreme but not that far off at all.
I am not a literary academic but just love clever complicated gritty mysteries with strong characters. Such as Hayder ,Robotham & Jussi
Probably not ...I didn't like it but others might
Expected it to be funny and satirical felt empty
Just won't buy another like it lesson learnt
I loved the humour, the characters and the way the series was presented. You can listen to it in episodes or as a whole, I loved the whole thing!
I think the English humour in looking at daily problems. There was a lot that could be related to for audience members of all ages and genders.
Everything, particularly David Tennant with his quirky way of speaking and singing.
"What a wonderful way to get the house clean"
I got this because of David Tennant, but the story had me listening all weekend - I got 2 and three just as soon as I finished one - I don't want to give anything away, but the main characters went through the same problems as my daughter and son-in-law, and I can't tell you what joy it gave me when everything worked out for the characters, just like it did for my children. I highly recommend this for any twenty somethings and for us who are older and still know what is like to be starting out
