Stephen is finally taking over his father's pub, and he has a tough act to follow. His dad, Laurie, is a local hero. At least he was, until he died. There's only one problem: Stephen is a loser. And when the charismatic Andrew turns up at Laurie's funeral, Stephen's anxiety strikes. Andrew claims the short time he spent fostered by Stephen's family was the happiest of his life. But to Stephen, Andrew is just one of 30-odd foster kids he resented during childhood. A slick sociopath who's trying to replace him. As Stephen teeters on the brink of paranoid mania, he investigates... Andrew's past but his most surprising discoveries will be about himself. Written by Emmy winner Simon Blackwell. [show more]

All six episodes of the Channel 4 sitcom starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb. Following the sudden death of his father Laurie (Matthew Holness), divorced 42-year-old Stephen (Mitchell) is due to take over the family pub in Stroud. However, his plans are thwarted by the arrival of his estranged brother Andrew (Webb), one of the many children his parents briefly fostered in the 1980s. Eager to regain contact with what he believes to be his true family, Andrew quickly charms Stephen's mother Ellen (Penny Downie) and sister Cass (Louise Brealey) but Stephen remains suspicious of his sudden reappearance and, to make matters worse, he's also been left a share of the pub in Laurie's will.
