Warren Thompson (Martin Clunes) is a pedantic driving instructor who suddenly finds himself in his mid-fifties with a job he doesn't enjoy and a family he never asked for.

Warren just wants an easy life. He's happy with a clean house, a neat garden, and a nice cup of tea.

But thanks to his naturally difficult personality, Warren is constantly finding himself in sticky situations.

Fifteen years ago Warren was content; a bachelor working for the civil service and living alone.

Fast forward and he's now a driving instructor, living with his partner Anne and her two sons, and is struggling to adapt to the role of 'husband', 'father' and 'brother or son-in-law'.

Not blessed with patience, empathy, or any kind of paternal instinct whatsoever, cantankerous, blunt and grumpy, he just about tolerates a couple of his pupils while the rest he simply can't stand.
