A warm and touching comedy about an older woman, this show resonated with me more than any other comedy I've seen recently, which is surprising considering I'm a 22 year old man! Joanna Lumley is fabulous and beautiful, and her portrayal is spot on. Her husband, played brilliantly by Denis Lawson, is funny and affable, though perhaps a bit predictable after so many years of marriage. Her son, played by James Lance (brilliant as usual), provides the biggest laughs of the show. The writing is smart and mature, and the humor is gentle rather than laugh-out-loud. The supporting cast is excellent. The subplot about marital infidelity might seem commonplace, but is handled with great skill. The last episode is particularly good, and the end is very poignant. If you're looking for a brilliantly conceived bittersweet show that handles the affairs of everyday people so skillfully as to make the themes universal, this is the show for you.
