How do you know if you are having a midlife crisis? Is it when you suspect your wife is having an affair and you are worried that you are not? Is it the fact that she no longer wants to have sex whilst your children cannot stop talking about it? Or is it when you start to hear the unspoken thoughts in other people's heads?

Originally broadcast on ITV, this unique take on middle age life stars the likes of Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sheila Hancock and Anna Chancellor.

Laurie's first TV drama after Jeeves And Wooster, Fortysomething revolves around GP Paul Slippery (Laurie) and his bored head hunter wife Estelle (Chancellor). Their sex-obsessed sons run riot while Estelle has to deal with eccentric Dr Ronnie Pilfrey (Capaldi), who immediately becomes infatuated with her.

The six part show was originally aired in 2003 and now has a cult fan base. Starring Hugh Laurie and a young Benedict Cumberbatch.

First released: Monday 26th March 2012
