Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing Series 6 (2023)
Wednesday 25th October 2023
Paul Whitehouse is an experienced fisherman; Bob Mortimer is a complete novice. Their friendship stretches back for decades, but they've recently reconnected after both suffering very serious heart problems and each staring death in the face.
Paul has suggested to Bob that he take up fishing to help recover from his triple heart bypass. Now, these two much loved comedians tour the country to fish side by side in some of the most picturesque landscapes the UK has to offer.
Across the half-hour episodes they dissect life, death and comedy. Paul is in charge of the fishing while Bob is in charge of the accommodation and cooking heart-healthy food. From recipes, regrets, relationships and rituals; to childhood, comedy and the countryside, the pair discuss everything alongside the ever-present shadows of showbiz and mortality.
This series sees the pair visiting the UK's oldest pub, camping overnight on the shores of a carp lake and celebrating their faithful hound Ted's birthday. Once again they travel across the UK and cast their lines in Wales, Shropshire, Wiltshire, the Scottish Borders, Driffield Beck in Yorkshire and Burgh Island off the Devon coast.
Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing is released on DVD and Blu-ray 6th November 2023 from Dazzler Media.
