Four old school friends reunite to attempt the epic coast to coast walk, across the United Kingdom. As their journey unfolds, this comically incompatible foursome walk full tilt into their mid-life crises.
A situation comedy about the comic adventures of a very reluctant country vet, Nick (Alexander Armstrong) who doesn't particularly like animals, in fact he really hates them! However, they bring him into constant contact with their mainly female owners whom he tries to woo with outlandish offers, unfortunately without much success. Written by

This is brilliant comedy. The cast is perfect together, and the premise of a vet who doesn't like animals leads to many laughs. Alexander Armstrong is excellent as Nick, the animal-hating vet, bringing subtle humour out of every line he's given. The comic interplay between him and Doon Mackichan (as the receptionist) appears so natural, and is always hilarious. The other two vets in the practice provide the "weird" factor, completing a great ensemble cast. A lot of work has gone into this series, into the writing, the performing, and the sets (how refreshing to see a comedy set in which the camera can actually move around!) and it pays off.
