This is based on an unlikely premise that anyone would tolerate their ex living next door and just waltzing in to their home unannounced at regular intervals. The actors involved are some of the best in their field but they are let down by obvious jokes and weak plots. Why do people never get angry or annoyed in British sitcoms? The character played by Anthony Head, in real life, would be angry that his ex was interfering in his new life. The new partner would likewise be angry, annoyed and upset rather than accept an unlikely scenario. Add to this the usual strong mother and weak father and you have a typical middle class suburban sitcom. One to avoid. When it is aired that is the time to do the jobs you have been putting off.
