The Old Guys - Series One

From the writers of Peep Show and The Thick Of It comes a new comedy about settling into old age with style. Housemates Tom and Roy are the ying to each other's yang. Roy is well-read, organised, clean and sensitive. Tom, well, isn't. As both of them settle into retirement, they are faced with the prospect of life simply not turning out quite how they imagined.

Together, however, they manage to muddle through life - answering the important questions that retirement poses. Questions involving religion, true-love and precisely how early is too early to start drinking in the day. Original, funny and only a little distasteful this new comedy takes a fresh look at retirement and the joys of growing old disgracefully.
