Discover the heartwarming, first-hand account of one of the most celebrated partnerships in the history of British entertainment, the 60-year marriage of Timothy West and Prunella Scales.

Timothy West and Prunella Scales are – first and foremost – actors. But their finest roles, it turns out, have always been as husband and wife! In Pru & Me, Timothy West charts the course of their lives, from the years before they met, to their secret courting and marriage. Diving into their journey to establishing themselves at the heart of British theatre, television and film over the next seventy years, most notably in Fawlty Towers and Brass.

Crammed full of funny, poignant, jaw-dropping and occasionally painful stories, Pru & Me also vividly recounts their later blaze of glory that introduced the world to the real Tim and Pru, via Great Canal Journeys. Here, the couple charmed the nation while charting Pru’s gentle struggle with dementia. A cosy, witty and above all uplifting story of two souls who found one another and have clung together through thick and thin, Pru & Me is a joyous portrait of an amazing marriage.
