Maurice and Cath's kids have left home, the nest is finally empty, a life of gin, golf and overseas holidays awaits . That is until the grandchildren arrive. Can there be a greater joy? But being grandparents also means being free baby - sitters . Then its dirty nappies , driving the kids to school and chasing a slippery tot around the bath . Hall's script is beautiful balanced with Skellern's witty and tuneful songs . You Can Always Hand Them Back is a vintage Hall , with his usual gift of providing instantly recognizable situations which grandparents and parents will find lots to laugh at .
