The show's first season arrived back in 2020, following Tennant and Sheen as they tried to rehearse a play during lockdown. Season two arrived the following year and focused on the aftermath of the first season's success.

Season three follows the pair as they try to navigate life after lockdown, while Simon has a difficult time trying to get them to work on another project with him after they have a fallout.

The official synopsis continues: "But Christmas is approaching, and Simon hopes the warmth of the season might soften them to the idea of a radio version of a Christmas classic..."
