    Paul O'Grady plays the unfortunate 51-year-old Neville who lives with his mother Melba - a feisty 70-something dance teacher who likes to play whist. Neville's job, however, is not so entertaining. Working at the dreaded social security office, he is, shall we say, not particularly crazy about his job. And as if his boring 9-5 schedule wasn't trouble enough, the poor fellow has to wake up to the sound of his mother nagging him to get up every morning, in addition to having to take all her snide comments about his appearance and deteriorating love-life. But Neville has a dream - after all, don't we all?
