a series of disastrous romances
a thirty-something singleton meets the
man of her dreams following his messy
divorce, but he is 26 years older than her
and will soon be history if her nightmare
family and his ex-wife have anything
to do with it in the highly amusing UK
TV Gold family comedy series You, Me
MEETING A LIVE-IN GIRLFRIEND'S FAMILY for the first time is always daunting,
especially when her mother is the same generation as you and wants her daughter
to have a normal life, as attractive Ed Walker (Anthony Head: Merlin; Dancing
On The Edge) discovers when he falls for the lovely Lauren Grey (Eva Myles:
Torchwood; Frankie), who is 26 years younger than him in the highly amusing
sit-com You, Me & Them.
It is not just the pedantic and prejudiced Emma Grey (Susie Blake: Mrs Brown's
Boys; Great Night Out) and her interference that Ed has to deal with but
Lauren's pernickety father Clive (Jeff Rawle: Holby City; Hollyoaks)
who follows him around asking him inappropriate questions to see if he is suitable
to be his daughter's boyfriend!
Me & Them
is an enjoyable family
comedy with plenty
and for the talented cast
to showcase their
in Lauren's sister Deborah (Daisy Beaumont: Whitechapel; New Tricks: Fresh
Starts), who cannot keep her mouth shut, her husband Keith Mason (Marcus
Garvey) and their troublesome children Charlie (Miller Henderson), who has a
habit of repeating his family's observations at the worst possible time, and
Ellie (Alice Felgate) who has just been dumped by her boyfriend and is in teenaged
angst and you have the perfect family. Not.
Furthermore, Ed's ghastly ex-wife Lydia (the superb Lindsay Duncan: Le Weekend;
Count Arthur Strong) has moved in next door and will try any trick in the
book and a few more besides to drive a wedge between
them. If that's not bad enough, Ed's bumbling brother Alan (Nigel Betts) is
staying temporarily with them. And then Ed's ne'er do well grandson Tim (Joshua
McGuire) turns up with his eye on Ellie!
Horror of horrors. Chaos rules. And things are about to take a turn for the
worse. Alan has found a potential girlfriend, the food-snob Mags (Felicity Montagu)
and Lydia has just the right advice for him or has she?
Genuinely in love with each other, Lauren and Ed have to be strong and resilient
in order to weather the storm as her nightmare family, his former wife and his
friends who think Lauren is just a trophy wife all
voice their opinions on what is a true love match.
