Summary

The complete second series of the BBC radio comedy drama about a couple who have been married 'for ever' but are keeping the passion alive.

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

Once again, we listen in on their warm, witty 'conversations', which dance around topics big and small: from health scares and jealousy to disagreements about TV viewing and sourdough bread. There's laughter, bickering, banter - and some loving one-upmanship from both parties, as Roger gives Joanna a masterclass in dishwasher stacking, while Joanna instructs him on how to wave goodbye to departing guests. 

Approaching the end of a particularly turbulent year, Joanna makes a list of New Year's Resolutions - for Roger - and suggests their marriage needs a re-boot. 'Out the door?' is his response: but there's plenty of life left in this long, loving relationship, and many more discussions, questions and confessions yet to come.... 

Created by award-winning 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 sparkling comedy two-hander will resonate with anyone who's ever been in a couple.

Starring Joanna Lumley and Roger Allam.
Produced and directed by Claire Jones.
A BBC Studios production.

Laughing out loud

Funny, sensitive, bit sad but so well played as only Joanna and Roger can do. I would love to have these kind of conversations in a couple of years....

I love this series, please make more xx

superbly read by both Roger and Joanna (If I may be so bold) give this series both gravitas and laugh out loud humour. Thank you.
