Description

They can take his job… but they’ll have to catch him first.

Clive Peacock is a cheery, contented postie living in a seaside Dorset town. His job has always been simple: real people, real post, real customer service. New technology is threatening Clive’s livelihood, with the sorting office now swarmed by machines that are guaranteed to take over his job.

In a defiant, last-ditch attempt to protest and prove his worth, Clive sets out on an ambitious mission. He vows to deliver every single letter in his last post by hand, cycling all over Britain to give his customers their letters face-to-face, the old fashioned way.

However, Clive’s noble quest doesn’t win the hearts of the police, who are in hot pursuit of the gentle postman for stealing Her Majesty’s mail…

The impressive cast features Primetime Emmy nominee Jim Carter (Downton Abbey), BAFTA nominee Alison Steadman (Life is Sweet), and BAFTA winner Rebecca Front (The Thick of It).

British Comedy Award winner for Best BBC Comedy Drama.
