The complete Series 1-5 of the BBC Radio 4 comedy about parenting in modern times.

Tom and Rosie are solo parents living 250 miles apart. Both recently divorced, bruised and lonely, they're looking for a cyber pal who understands what they're going through. So when they log on to a parenting advice website, they make an instant, sparky connection. Gradually, their online friendship becomes something more, and a 'will they/won't they' relationship develops via emails, text, phone calls and the SPP forum.

Following a succession of twists and turns, mistimings and misunderstandings, they finally meet—only for things get even more complicated. But fortunately, new chatroom buddies and confidants Baz, Tash, Gilly, Scott and Barb are there to provide advice and a shoulder to cry on—as well as chipping in with the latest news on their own tangled love lives....
