Mitchel, a mild-mannered suburban stockbroker spirals out of control after losing his job, finding his wife in flagrante with a sleazy neighbour, and discovering his dad is dying of cancer, all on the eve of his 44th birthday.
Max Vivaldi has always believed that he owns the town of Swansea, thanks to an ancient ancestral document that hangs on his wall. But instead of commanding respect, it's made him a laughing stock. Max discovers he's been right all along
Griff Rhys Jones,
That rare combination in today's hypermedia, short attention spanned televisual world, Bob and Rose is witty, warm, provocative and honest storytelling.
The ever-prolific Russell T. Davies has delivered a small screen delight with a touching, funny, soul-mate saga that challenges and entertains. The show is awash with superb performances, Davies, Sharp and Stevenson a standout.
I can understand the subject matter provoking strong reactions, but I think that's surely RTD's point. Let's not forget he's the genius behind Queer as Folk - a refreshingly no holds barred writer, inclined to shake things up a bit whatever he turns his hand to.
Upstanding, outstanding television!
