Synopsis:
Warren Thompson (Martin Clunes) is a pedantic driving instructor who suddenly finds himself in his mid-fifties with a job he doesn't enjoy and a family he never asked for. Warren just wants an easy life. He's happy with a clean house, a neat garden, and a nice cup of tea. But thanks to his naturally difficult personality, Warren is constantly finding himself in sticky situations. 15 years ago Warren was content; a bachelor working for the civil service and living alone. Fast forward and he's now a driving instructor, living with his partner Anne and her two sons, and is struggling to adapt to the role of 'husband', 'father' and 'brother or son-in-law'.
Not blessed with patience, empathy, or any kind of paternal instinct whatsoever, we follow Warren and the hilarious situations this gets him into, both at work and at home.

Curmudgeonly driving instructor - Warren: Series 1 review by AW

Spoiler Alert
11/01/2021

This single series seems to have been universally panned when aired but I actually found it very funny and was all ready to order the second series but that seems to been shelved.

Clunes is an acerbic, selfish, curmudgeonly, crotchety and fiscally tight driving instructor in the City of Preston. He lives with his girlfriend Anne and her 2 teenage sons. "Warren" looks quite different in his khakis and with a pepper and salt beard, quite unlike his Doc Martin persona who this character is unfairly compared with. The neighbours, driving students, and

shop assistants that Warren deals with all fit the bill of diversity but are all fine in their bit parts. He continually wastes his clients' valuable lesson time by highjacking them to takeaways, shops and distant locations so he doesn't have to spend extra time going out for his personal chores.

Anne's parents too are funny but only get to shine in 2 of the episodes. Too bad as many threads of the plot lie unexplored, and I felt another series might well have leveled it all out.
