This warmly funny Britcom stars Rob Brydon and an all-male synchronised swimming team in mass mid-life crisis. Brydon is Eric, a bored accountant with a sagging marriage and a growing and inexplicable feeling of panic about his life in suburbia. His wife Heather is played by the perky but long-suffering Jane Horrocks. She has just become a local councillor, and their teenage son is leading his own life. Only when Eric is swimming lengths of the local pool does he feel some sense of calm. He ends up geekily advising the male synchronised swimmers about the mathematical imbalance in their formations and is recruited to the team where he begins to find the camaraderie and purpose missing in his life.
“We're just a bunch of middle-aged men who want to meet up in trunks that are too small for us, and make funny little patterns in a pool!”
