Synopsis

All seven episodes from Series 1 of Steve Coogan's BBC comedy drama series. Tommy Saxondale (Coogan) has been through the rock and roll mill and lived to tell the tale. He plays fast and loose, shoots from the hip, and tells no lies - he's a true maverick. Tommy never took the corporate dollar. He doesn't work for 'the man'; he's his own man. These and other moth-eaten cliches are how Tommy would describe himself. But when Tommy removes his rose-tinted Aviator shades, he can't deny a few basic facts: he may have been a middle-ranking roadie for 20 years, but for the past ten years he has been at the cutting edge of... the Hertfordshire pest control industry. After a hostile divorce, Tommy has found his soulmate in Magz (Ruth Jones), proprietress of an anarchic T-shirt shop. In the course of the series Tommy gets his eyesight improved by a prostitute, has a heart murmur in Halfords, executes a pigeon and experiments with women's make-up.
