Summary: It's not just the legendary prowess.
Gene’s watched too many coppers’ marriages go tits-up; he’s bloody well sure it ain’t gonna happen to him.
He never forgets her birthday or their wedding anniversary. He can still remember the song that played the first time they danced together. He knows what kind of flowers she likes to get after they’ve had a row, not to mention how to give her a good time in bed.
What’s he got with the Missus ain’t perfect, but he’s determined to hang on to it.
The only thing is, since Sam Tyler showed up, he’s having a hard time remembering why.
