Not Like That, Like This

Feature Television

A single film about legendary comedian Tommy Cooper, written by Simon Nye (How Do You Want Me, Men Behaving Badly) and starring David Threlfall (Shameless, Nowhere Boy) as Tommy.

Simon Nye's script focuses on the dilemma the much-loved comedian faced when he fell in love with assistant Mary Kay (Helen McCrory) and embarked upon a relationship that would last 17 years. Tommy was married to Gwen (Amanda Redman), whom he adored and affectionately nicknamed Dove. Tommy was unable to choose between Dove and Mary, and his untimely death live on air in 1984 meant that he never did.
