In this issue of Saga Magazine : Cheer up the somewhat grey and gloomy month of February with our comedy special issue. Our round-up of the nation’s 20 favourite comedians touring in 2015 comes complete with gags galore from the likes of Paul Merton, Michael McIntyre, Tim Vine, Bill Bailey and Peter Kay. If laughter really is the best medicine, this issue ought to be prescribed reading. One person with every reason to smile is our cover star, Penelope Wilton: she’s currently on stage in the West End and back on the big screen in the sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, as well as starring in Downton Abbey. No complaints about the lack of roles for older actresses here, then! There are, however, certain regrets: the stiff upper-lipped actress gives us a glimpse into her private anguish of love and loss.
Not so long ago, the private anguish of unmarried mothers and their illegitimate children was a terrible burden to bear. We look back at those unkind, unforgiving days, and two women tell their heart-wrenching tales. And from the way we were, to the way we will be: our experts predict how new technology is likely to change all our lives by this time next year: driverless cars, family robots and pocket-doctor smartphones for starters…
Our beverage report examines why this nation of tea-drinkers has gone coffee-crazy, we pick the best new beauty products to make you feel film-star fabulous, and take a look at retirement living 21st-century style. Don’t downsize without reading about rightsizing – the latest buzzword in contemporary retirement villages complete with pools, spas, restaurants and care, if needed. Plus our unrivalled coverage of the arts, money, health, gardening, food and drink, travel, and all the things that matter to the over-50s.
