The ris­ing son

BACK | Chan­nel 4 10PM

Peep Show’s David Mitchell and Robert Webb are back to­gether for this new sit­com in which they star as a pair of re­united fos­ter broth­ers… or do they?

David plays Stephen, the in­tro­verted son of pub land­lord Lau­rie, who has re­cently died. Hav­ing been es­sen­tially ig­nored by his fam­ily for most of his life, Stephen as­sumes that now is his big op­por­tu­nity to step into his fa­ther’s shoes, take charge of the pub and prove him­self once and for all.

That is, un­til the ar­rival of An­drew (played by Robert), who was ap­par­ently one of the fam­ily’s many fos­ter chil­dren, and their mother’s sup­posed favourite. He’s in­vited to stay for a while, but Stephen has no mem­o­ries of An­drew – so is he re­ally who he claims to be?
