The Posthumous Adventures of Harry Whittaker
The first task is caring.
Only then comes letting go.
When Harry Whittaker, much loved star of stage and screen, dies suddenly of a heart attack, he finds himself still in this world. Trapped in a bizarre afterlife, he struggles to free himself. Meanwhile, his estranged son Richard is also trying to escape - from his failing café, his dotty mother and the wrong girlfriend. Perhaps what they all need is a guardian angel.
