Danny Spencer is the creator and voice of Dexter - a seven-foot tall plasticine kung-fu nurse bear. He's popular and successful (in a minor celebrity way), but the onset of middle age seems to offer only vanity, insecurity and enforced celibacy. His ex-girlfriend Rachel and her husband are coasting into middle-age on a wave of cynicism and domestic cosiness, 'sad tossers' Sid and Charlie seem happy to seek contentment at the bottom of a glass, while fast cars, nipple-piercing, designer drugs and young girls have been helping Angus with his mid-life crisis for years... so why can't Danny find happiness? Personality Crisis Has his wife’s death sunk in yet? And is that a bald patch he can see in the funeral video? I'm Doing It For Me Life requires some sacrifices: Danny’s face-lift leaves him in a balaclava and Angus finds nipple-piercing can ruin a designer shirt. Chained To An Idiot Danny’s libido is off the leash, and goes to one of Angus’ parties. Cocaine, dance music, young girls, it’s all so shallow, but if it gets you laid… Desperate Dan Everything’s looking up: Danny gets an explicit fan letter and Bob Geldof sets him up with a posh bird. Even Sid has a girlfriend – for an hour. Celebration Is there anything worse than not being nominated for a BAFTA? What about being nominated, having to go to your girlfriend’s step-father’s birthday party instead and putting your boot through his telly? Forty It’s Dan’s 40th birthday; he’s pissed off his friends, his mum, his girlfriend and the Big Issue seller. But at last he’s found one definite truth: those old punk records were always crap.
