All six episodes of the BBC's dark comedy drama series starring Joanna Lumley and Denis Lawson as Al and Davina Jackson, a successful London couple in their 60s who, along with their friends, struggle with sexual temptation and professional jealousy and try to cope with their fear of the future. Al is a pundit for a broadsheet newspaper and is paid to find imperfection in everything, while Davina works in an art gallery and is paid to make life more beautiful. But despite their success, being 60 isn't simple. The couple's 30-year-old son, Orlando (James Lance), refuses to acknowledge adulthood, while Davina's sister Veronica (Maggie Steed) and her husband Roger (Nicholas Jones) intimidate the Jacksons with their seemingly confident and controlled grasp of life.
