Set in the small fictitious town of Tambury, the series follows Tony, a writer for the local newspaper whose life is upended after his wife dies from cancer.
Tony had a perfect life. But following the death of his beloved wife Lisa to breast cancer, Tony changes.
Having contemplated taking his own life, he decides instead to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he likes. He feels it's like a Super Power, because if anything goes wrong, he always has the ultimate recourse to going through with suicide.
However, not caring about yourself or anyone else turns out to be tricky when everyone is trying to save the nice guy they used to know.
Series 2 focuses on the looming threat of the local newspaper being shut down. Will the town's local Am-Dram show lift everyone's spirits?
