In this issue of Saga Magazine : The February issue of Saga Magazine is guaranteed to brighten grey days. Nothing so clearly tells us that winter is on the wane as a smattering of snowdrops, and this month we meet a couple whose cottage garden has stunning, snowy-white sweeps of them at every turn. And our cover star, the ever-cheery BBC Breakfast presenter Bill Turnbull, reveals that his retirement plans include looking after llamas as well as his beloved bees – oh, and enjoying some well-deserved lie-ins. If you were tempted to retire to India after watching The Best Marigold Hotel films, you’ll enjoy our feature about the celebrities sent to sample retirement in India for real: Wayne Sleep, Jan Leeming, Roy Walker and Rosemary Shrager report back on their extraordinary experiences in Jaipur.

One person who has no intention of retiring is Dame Helen Mirren. At 70 and with a new film, Trumbo, out this month, she talks to us about her left-wing leanings, struggles against chauvinism, feeling fat (really?) and growing old gracefully. Plus, we meet Dinah Jefferies, author of The Tea Planter’s Wife, who didn’t start writing until her sixties. She reveals the colourful life and personal tragedy that inspired her, and shares her secrets of how to write a bestseller.

All that, plus our unrivalled coverage of the arts, money, health, gardening, food and travel, and all the things that matter to the over-50s.
