Grandma's House is written by Simon Amstell and long term collaborator Dan Swimer. The series stars Simon Amstell playing a version of himself; a television presenter who is quitting his job to try and do something more meaningful with his life. Each episode is set at Grandma's House where Simon's Jewish family regularly congregate to catch up. Everything happens under Grandma's (Linda Bassett - East Is East, Lark Rise To Candleford) watchful eye who is desperate to see everything going well. The show also stars BAFTA winner Rebecca Front (The Thick Of It, Nighty Night) who plays Simon's mum, Tanya, a large than life single woman who's looking for love and dotes on her famous son. The rest of the cast includes the late Geoffrey Hutchings (Benidorm) as Grandpa, James Smith (In The Loop, The Armando Iannucci Shows) as Clive, Samantha Spiro (Cor, Blimey!) as Auntie Liz, and introduces Jamal Hadjkura as her son Adam.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
