Tommy Cooper: Not Like That, Like This

Drama telling the story of one of Britain's best-loved comedians - a giant of a man with a delicate soul, a man who was in love with two women and was unable to choose between them.

Tommy Cooper was a magician, a comedian, an entertainer and a celebrity adored by the public. But he was a troubled man who drank too much and slept too little, and who spent the last 17 years of his life loving both his wife Dove and his assistant Mary. Tommy was unable to live without either, and his shocking death from a heart attack in front of millions of television viewers in April 1984 meant that he never had to make that impossible choice.
