Summary

Career fraudster Bob has been away at Her Majesty's pleasure for the last five years, but he's just been released on licence with an ankle tag registered to his estranged son's address. Gruff isn't happy about it, but Bob is a charming man who manages to persuade other people in Gruff's life that his heart is in the right place. Elis James and Katy Wix play new parents Gruff and Alice, whose lives are disrupted when Bob moves in, and Steve Speirs plays Bob.

Good old fashioned funny radio show

This show is not ground breaking or really that original but to be honest I don’t care. It’s got some good jokes in it and some excellent performances from the three main actors Ellis James, Katy wix and Steve speirs. Steve Speirs in particular gives a great performance as the lovable con man who manages to inveigle his way into his sons house and life. It’s a really easy show to listen too and the episodes fly by. You want something not too taxing but enjoyable I recommend this.
