Anyone catch this with the brilliant Lesley Manville?

Reminds me of Gavin and Stacy a bit, not laugh out of comedy but it's all in the slightly too long pausesgrin

Can't wait for the next one!smile

First one is on iPlayer atm.

We really enjoyed it too, just put it on on the off chance and we're pleased we did.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 16-May-16 09:08:47

Wasn't it great? Best thing I've seen for ages! Made me laugh and well up in the space of half an hour.

I used to see Lesley Manville frequently as I used to live near her, she's lovely in RL too.

It was on, but I fell asleep!!!! I'm going to try and catch it on iplayer.

Groovee Mon 16-May-16 11:09:53

Reminds me of him and her.

HapShawl Mon 16-May-16 12:08:55

It's been done by the same people who made him and her

HapShawl Mon 16-May-16 12:09:33

It's sort of like him and her fast forwarded 30 years

It's so old fashioned! And there's I Want My Wife Back too- it's as if the BBC's caught in a time warp.

HapShawl Mon 16-May-16 13:24:35

What do you find old fashioned about it?

I hadn't heard of I want my wife back so can't comment on that

Davros Mon 16-May-16 13:28:52

I started a thread on I Want My Wife Back and no one posted! Shows how unpopular it is. I will give Mum a go, the title put me right off

Blond bimbo
Thoughtless son
Henpecked man with snobbish partner
Silent friend who will end up with her in the end.

A slightly brought up to date After Henry.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 16-May-16 13:44:48

I loved After Henrygrin

I didn't like I Want my Wife Back I only have it ten mins though tbf.

I didn't see Him and Her.

Where can I find I want my wife back?

The80sweregreat Mon 16-May-16 15:55:18

I liked it. Poor Michael is so in love, bless him. Lesley Manville is a lovely actress.
Kelly was funny, pauline i wanted to hit.
Looking forwards to next week.

Davros Mon 16-May-16 16:01:54

I Want My Wife Back is a BBC programme. It is dire!

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 16-May-16 16:12:22

Can I borrow some knickers? grin

Jackie0 Mon 16-May-16 16:14:12

I just found it on catch up , love it !
Have I missed any or was this the first one ?

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 16-May-16 16:51:26

First one!

frillyflower Mon 16-May-16 22:43:27

It was awful. Really old fashioned. The joke about losing your glasses but they're on your head- went on for far too long and not funny at all.
Waste of Lesley Manville.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 16-May-16 22:46:51

I loved that as I'm always doing the samegrin

southeastdweller Tue 17-May-16 20:23:37

I also loved it. So funny and well observed. Pauline is the most believably passive-aggressive character I've seen in a TV show.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 17-May-16 21:03:57

She was!grin

BearFeet Wed 18-May-16 12:43:01

I loved it too.
