A seven-part drama that explores the lives, loves, and careers of a group of friends from Coventry who all move to London. Emma is in a seven-year relationship with Mark Rose, with whom she has a son named Sam. She marries him although she loves his brother Rich--a butcher. Rich lives with his girlfriend Louise who is a hairdresser, but he finds the temptation of a dalliance with Emma hard to resist, especially when his relationship with Louise comes under strain when Louise's mother becomes ill. Also, there is Emma's best pal Amanda, who's single since splitting up with her investment banker boyfriend Michael; Romance novel writer Sinéad is besotted with Mark but turns to the Internet for love when he marries Rose; and Rich and Mark's younger brother Robbie, who comes to London for the wedding and stays to pursue his hobbies of beer and women.Written by
A fantastic piece of work by Stuart Harcourt, who has managed to create a series in which you actually like all the characters - what a feat. Even Emma's boss inspired a kind of sympathy. To actually care what happens to all the characters is an emotion not usually inspired in viewers of this kind of genre - Cold Feet achieved a similar effect.
A special mention for Amanda Holden who managed to pull off a magnificent performance as Louise Slaney, the not so hard bitten "seen it all" kind of 90's broad. She was inspired. The lines generously sent her way were not wasted - her voice over from the other side of Michael's door in the final episode was a gem of delivery.
Thanks goodness another series has been commissioned. Can we wait a year - thats the big question?
