Further details

Maureen's mum Joan (June Whitfield) drops a bombshell - she's getting married and her new husband to be - Roy - is 20 years younger than her. The three couples gather at the very grand hotel for the wedding.

While the couples try to find out the truth about "too good to be true" Roy, Joan surprises them all by knowing much more than she lets on - and still making sure she comes out with the upper hand.

Who Killed Roy?

The boys try to come up with a plan after finding Roy dead in his room with a half dressed maid.

Featuring: Philip Jackson (Alan), Russ Abbot (John), James Smith (Trevor), Paula Wilcox (Carol) & Julia Hills (Pat).


Last in the series of Richard Pinto's amiably silly sitcom about sixtysomethings - and in June Whitfield's case, ninetysomethings - resolutely failing to behave like old folks. Tonight, Joan (Whitfield) appears to have landed herself a 70-year-old toy boy, Roy. Joyce and Maureen are convinced that he's after her money but it turns out to be more complex than that. Good to see Paula Wilcox back on screen, so underused since Man About The House.
