Not Going Out - Series One, Two, Three, Four & Five

BAFTA-winning comedians Lee Mack and Tim Vine star alongside Sally Bretton (The Office, Green Wing), Miranda Hart (Miranda), Megan Dodds (Spooks) and Katy Wix (Torchwood) in the hit BBC One prime-time series Not Going Out.

Series 1: Lee is unburdened by ambition or drive, drifting from one ill-advised job to another, living off the goodwill and generosity of his landlady, Kate (Dodds), a clean living Californian. Meanwhile, his best mate and uptight accountant Tim (Vine), struggles to get over his break-up with Kate and cope with her rapidly blossoming friendship with Lee.

Series 2: Kate has moved out for good and his best mate and now sole landlord, Tim, has put the apartment up for sale. Faced with the prospect of losing the flat, not to mention his well-meaning but utterly useless cleaner Barbara (Hart), Lee rents the spare room to Tim's ambitious younger sister Lucy (Bretton)... Well, sort of.

Series 3: Having developed feelings for Lucy and successfully sabotaging her relationship with her then-boyfriend Guy, Lee still has no significant plans to confront her, and distractions such as pregnancies, insurance scams, and noisy neighbours keep his mind off the bigger picture.

Series 4: Trouble seems to find Lee at every turn. Not only are friends Tim and his ditzy girlfriend Daisy (Wix) on hand to cause problems, but Lee also has to cope with stolen drugs, missing OAPs, long-lost daughters and a coma.

Series 5: Lee continues to get into all sorts of scrapes and sticky situations in his eagerness to please and impress the object of his affections. But will a drunken experiment with Lucy show once and for all that love really is in the air or will it just lead to more mayhem and mishaps?
