4 Extra Debut. Chloe thinks gran’s funeral is the time to share baby news – but she’s pipped at the post. Stars Alison Steadman. From 2019.

The funeral of beloved grandmother Doris brings the family together in sorrow.

Chloe thinks this is the perfect time to share her and Ina’s forthcoming baby news - until she is unexpectedly pipped at the post.

Drawing on his own family, series two of Richard Herring’s comedy drama, builds on the warm, lively characters and family dynamics of the first series.

His affectionate observation of inter-generational misunderstanding, sibling sparring and the ties that bind will resonate with anyone who has ever argued with their dad about who the current Pope is.

Amid the comedy, Richard broaches some more serious highs and lows of family life.
