Excellent, warm, witty, mature drama/comedy. Perhaps the wife is discontented and missing something in her life, but she also loves her husband deeply. She has reached the age where time is finite and wonders what life is all about. The comedy is understated but still found myself laughing out loud. I think season two may be even better than one. Joanna Lumley is beautiful but looks her age which is refreshing. Denis Lawson is fantastic and funny. Nicholas Jones and the rest of the supporting cast are wonderful. This reminds me of the 1970s comedy Butterflies. What is most refreshing to me is the lack of cynicism and biting one liners that pass for comedy in many U.S. productions. Characters seem real because they seem to genuinely care about each other and go out of their way not to hurt each other as they metamorphose.
