You, Me & Them“After a series of disastrous romances

  TV Gold family comedy series You, Me
  & Them
..
.”

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!

You, Me & Them

comedy with plenty
of opportunities

or laughs
and for the talented cast

Throw 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.
