Elaine throws a party for a friend who is expecting a baby.
Robbie Coltrane and John Sessions star as Dr Samuel Johnson and nis companion, biographer and fellow-writer James Boswell , in this irreverent account of their journey to the Hebrides in 1773. Johnson was already elderly and unfit, and their travels took them into a wild environment, far from the comparative comforts of literary London. During this arduous expedition the pair both kept journals, and these loosely form the basis of John Byrne's Screenplay, the last In the series.
Byrne, author of the acclaimed music-based series Tutti Frutti (in which Coltrane also starred) and Your Cheatin' Heart, has taken some historical liberties in bringing his two heroes to life in this warm, atmospheric portrait which marks his debut as a director.
