Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing: Episode 5 (S5EP5 BBC Two Friday 7 October 2022)



Episode 5

Paul and Bob travel to the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the heart of the English countryside to fish a lake there. Will Bob’s gaffes prevent them from catching these elusive fish? They hope to catch some carp and barbel. To Paul’s dismay, they settle in for a conversation about the pleasures of gardening. 

Dr. Anand Patel, a health expert, later joins them by the lake. He and Bob get right into the significance of men taking care of their health, especially as they age and especially with regard to their weight.

Season 5 Episode 5

Lifelong friends Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer have more in common than just their love of comedy – they have both recently suffered from heart disease and directly faced their own mortality.

This series follows them as they re-connect with each other and share their personal and often hilarious experiences of life while testing the parameters of true friendship … on a soggy riverbank.

Experienced angler Paul takes Bob to some of the most tranquil and naturally beautiful places in the UK to try to teach him the peaceful art of fishing, while Bob reveals his new found culinary skills by cooking health conscious meals for Paul.
