When the Dog Dies

At last! It was 2008's P-P Comedy of the Year, and now it's on the wireless. Radio 4 to be precise, starting this Friday at 11.30 in the morning, and there are six episodes in total.

"Ronnie Corbett reunites with Ian Davidson[/p and Peter Vincent, the writers of his hit BBC sitcom Sorry, for this new comedy for BBC Radio 4.

Corbett plays Sandy Hopper, who is growing old happily along with his dog, Henry. His grown-up children are both married to people Sandy doesn't approve of and would like him to move out of the family home so they can get their hands on their money earlier. But Sandy is not having this - he's not moving until the dog dies.

Sandy also has a lodger and his daughter is convinced that the too-attractive Dolores is after her father and his money.

Luckily, Sandy has three grandchildren; sometimes a friendly word or a kindly hand on the shoulder can really help a grandad in the 21st century. Man and dog together face a complicated world".

So, get ready to put the kettle on, dig out the jaffa cakes, and put your feet up. Here's some footage of a dog to put you in the mood. Don't worry. It's very much alive.
