“Set in the small fictitious town of Tambury, the show follows Tony, a writer for the local newspaper whose life is upended after his wife dies from cancer. While still struggling with immense grief, Tony starts to realise that making other people feel good is what can give him hope and a reason to live. After all, every end is a new beginning.”
On 6 May 2020, the show was renewed for a third season, the first time a fictional series created by Gervais had been extended beyond two seasons.
Tony decides to honour his late father’s wishes by scattering his ashes around his favourite haunts while also scaling back his impulsive and cold attitude as he hopes to embrace the advice given by his late wife.
