Death and the Maven

yesterday morning (wednesday 18th), 11.30am-12.00, on bbc radio 4
death and the maven (comedy, starring jeremy front, rebecca front, and tracy-ann oberman) (1st of 6 episodes)

A new comedy show about Jack and Millie Lemman, an older couple who are fully engaged with contemporary life while being at war with the absurdities of the modern world.

When Film Club Leo dies suddenly, Jack and Millie have to make a choice between good behaviour and cheesecake, in this comedy about an older couple trying to grapple with an elusive name, a missing Bette Midler, a rogue knish and a married lifetime’s-worth of verbal sparring. So Millie’s son Melvin has given her a new tablet with a voice recorder? So suddenly Jack and Millie have decided to record everything that happens to them? And for this, we should be grateful?”
