The Gobetweenies

David Tennant and Sarah Alexander star as multi-married exes in a shared parenting radio comedy, written by Marcella Evaristi and directed by Marilyn Imrie.
The Gobetweenies is a candid look at contemporary family through the prism of two North London siblings, Lucy and Tom, as they schlep between their determinedly hands-on parents.
Joe can't take being a "once a fortnight" dad. Lucy is excited about exploring surrealism, Tom is obsessively counting sultanas and their mum, Mimi, is desperate for her third attempt at married life to get started. But the children's father, Joe, has come to a decision that will change all their lives.

LISTEN NOW:

Meet The Millers

Lucy is excited about exploring surrealism, Tom is obsessively counting sultanas and their mum Mimi is desperate for her third attempt at married life to get started --- but the children‟s father Joe has come to a decision that will changes their all their lives . . .

Sniffing Stevie And The Gym Horse

Tom feels guilty about not wanting to befriend a boy with a permanent snot bubble, and his parents' mixed messages don't help, meanwhile a visit to a tattoo parlour gives Lucy a great idea about getting some attention – and Joe finds a new job.

Commendation And Competition

After Lucy's success in the art class she is keen to attend her dad's current exhibition, but Joe has just started work as a painter and decorator and weirdly doesn't want to go. Meanwhile Mimi is stuck as usual with snide Helen, the conniving mother of Lucy's best pal. So why is Helen pretending to find Tom's lame jokes such a hoot?

Befriending Freddie

Mimi is desperate to bring the kids to New York for the premiere of her new husband's play but Tom has made a new best friend and wants to stay home and Lucy is refusing to miss her bf's birthday party. Mimi and Joe do mutually supportive shared parenting --- so her ex is bound to back her up isn't he?
