Created by Steve Turner, You, Me and Them tells the story of Ed (Anthony Head) and Lauren (Eve Myles) who are madly in love, despite their 20 plus-year age gap. The only problem is that Lauren’s family and everyone around them seems to have an opinion on the subject. Ed’s ex-wife Lydia (Lindsay Duncan) rents the house opposite the couple, Lauren’s family are constantly meddling and Ed’s friends think she’s a trophy girlfriend. You can choose your partner but you can’t choose your family.
