This forthcoming sitcom has 'hit' written all over it. A great writing team and a great cast:

Starts at the end of the month. More than likely in the Friday 9:30pm slot from the 30th Jan (although that's not confirmed yet).

Just looked at the link, worth a watch, although judging from the picture with Jane Asher and the annoying foghorn woman from the IT Crowd I guess they're keeping the the sexy neighbour under wraps?...

I might watch, but I'm put off by Clive Swift after his attitude in Doctor Who Magazine.

Sadly, I know what you're talking about. And I agree. He came across like a complete c**t.

He was just completely rude and disparaging about the show and was obnoxious and plain nasty to the bloke interviewing him. Just made himself look like a c**t.

Clive Swift was in Revelation of the Daleks as Mr. Joyboy? F**k him, he was shit anyway.

I see The Old Guys has been repackaged as a BBC One vehicle. Proof that the original script was an empty cupboard. I predict that it will be a big hit however.

So he was, I'd forgotten that; though the interview in question is from when he was in the Kylie starring, flying Titanic sporting, Christmas special turkey.

Wow, I didn't even notice him in the Voyage of the Damned special. He'll be in the last page of the appendix of the Who Actors guide then. (There isn't an appendix).

Not that recently as they've both been dead 8 years plus. Grumpier old men was 1995 so, as the say goes, time flies...
