Pilot

When a homeless Spanish busker needs some help, Barbara sees it as the perfect opportunity to do some good and stir things up home... A little more than she expected.

Further details

Stockport housewife extraordinaire Barbara Nice is the creation of Phoenix Nights star Janice Connolly.

Barbara is worried she and Ken are at risk of adding to the numbers of silver splitters - they have nothing in common; Ken's idea of retirement involves a marathon session of Pointless and that doesn't fit with Barbara's idea of a well spent golden age.
