    Release Date:

    From the pen of acclaimed writer Steven Moffat (Coupling, Doctor Who, Jekyll, Press Gang) comes the award-winning comedy series about divorce.

    "My wife left me...."

    Comedy writer Mark Taylor (Robert Bathurst - Cold Feet, My Dad`s the Prime Minister) knows he has found the woman of his dreams when he meets Becky Johnson by chance, in highly embarrassing circumstances. Becky (Fiona Gillies - Holby City, Peak Practice, Fry & Laurie) is won over by his non-stop, quick-fire one-liners, and, following a brief but ever eventful romance, they giggle their way up the aisle.

    But five years down the line, Mark hasn`t noticed that the joke has worn thin and the laughter track has run out. When he arranges a surprise party for his wife, little does he realise that it will truly turn out to be a night to remember for everyone.

    Now, for the first time since it was broadcast, you can experience the joy and the pain, the laughter and the tears with this digitally restored version of the complete first series of Steven Moffat`s bittersweet masterpiece.

    Commentaries on four episodes with writer Steven Moffat, Robert Bathurst, Fiona Gillies and Tracie Bennett
