UK / ITV-1 / 6×60 minute episodes / Broadcast from 29 June 2003

Writer: Nigel Williams / Producer: Jo Willett / Directors: Hugh Laurie, Nic Phillips

Comic drama about the fortysomething life of GP Paul Slippery living with wife Estelle, his three sons and two of their girlfriends who are sisters.

Hugh Laurie directed some of the episodes himself. Unfortunately it proved a ratings flop and ITV pulled the show from its 9pm Sunday slot after just two episodes and showed the rest of the series at 11pm on Saturdays.
