I Want My Wife Back
27 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw the advert for this British sitcom, I was obviously interested because of the leading actor, who I first remember seeing in Johnny English, and it sounded like a good simple format, so I gave it a go, and stuck with it until the end. Basically Murray (Ben Miller) is a nice guy, many people say so, he has good relationships with his friends, office work colleagues and staff, but his wife Bex (Doc Martin's Caroline Catz) feels that their marriage is not working anymore. So on the day where Murray plans a surprise party for her 40th birthday, Bex walks out on their marriage with no explanation, so Murray starts a quest to find out what went wrong and he can change. During the "temporary" separation Murray is trying anything he can to save his marriage with Bex, but he also has to manage the demands of his needy team members, and navigate through well-meaning but counter-productive advice from friends and family, but will he ever get his wife back. Also starring Kenneth Collard as Grant, Susannah Fielding as Emma, Abigail Thaw as Abbie, Ali G Indahouse's Stewart Wright as Curtis, Kate Miles as Tamzin, Priyanga Burford as Nereesha, Jan Francis as Paula, Peep Show's Cariad Lloyd as Keeley, The Mimic's Peter Wight as Don, James Lance as Julian Wolverton, Javone Prince as Zak and Gabby Best as Alice. Miller gives a terrific performance as the guy trying to help everyone out whilst trying to solve his own situation, Catz is also good as his unsatisfied but longing wife, many of the supporting cast members have great characters also, including the incompetent friend, the boss having an affair whilst his wife may also be canoodling and the highly boring office colleague. The story of a marriage in trouble and a possible mid-life crisis is done well, I was mostly laughing at the all the leading male character's awkward situations and terribly funny mistakes, the female leading character had her moments too, all in all it was a funny comedy show. Very good!
