This I believe is the last in the series of a modern radio play about a couple who manages to stay childless while all their friends and family manage to have demanding monsters for children (being a form of birth control). I love David Tennant's voice, that was half the joy. Not to give too much away, but for most of the series the story it's light and somewhat comical as everyone's life around them is going to bit. However, tragedy does strike our brave couple and it is serious and deep drama. I felt deeply for the characters. even though some were on the verge of being spineless ninnies not worthy of thought or care.
"A rare comedy gem original and funny"
Sitcoms are always going to be difficult to write and original ideas are hard to come by but tjis is why this is so good. Almost social outcasts, their different perspective on life is great. The acting of course is first class as you would expect from Liz Carling and David Tennant
If you want good comedy with a great cast this is one for your library
I've been a fan of this particular radio gem for a number of years. Witty and at times poignant, this third instalment of Double Income No Kids Yet really delivers. It pulls very few punches but leaves you smiling. Far from being the light fluff of series 1 and 2, series 3 brings an edge to the laughter that bites, stinging with reality.
Definitely worth a listen.
