The comic daily lives of three misfits who share a London flat. Mandy, the beautiful, intelligent blonde who can't seem to keep a job or prevent the wrong men failing in love with her all the time. Matthew who owns the flat but can't step outside yet still manages to live out some bizarre fantasies much to the chagrin of the other occupants. Finally, Martin the red-haired dreamer who can't seem to find the right woman but has been having an on-off relationship with Clare for a long time whilst he searches in vain. Written by

At one point in episode three, of the first series, Matthew, played by Ben Chaplin, makes a reference to his new neighbor by referring to her as Winona Ryder. Ben would go onto act opposite Winona in the movie Lost Souls (2000). See more »
In the first series the number on the flat door was "7", but in the second and third series it is the same flat but has number "54" on the door. See more »
My fave all-time show (series one). I've practically memorised the script from watching it a thousand times( or there abouts). The character of Matt was played best by Ben Chaplin no question. Matt was Martin's hero in s1 despite the fact that he walked all over him, but, by s2 Matt had become this total loser who could no longer dominate Martin like he had and it even looked like Matt (now Neil Stuke) would probably lose in a fight with Martin. Series 2 was probably better written than the first series, but for me Ben Chaplin owns that role.Who can forget that excellent De Niro impression or the story of how he had killed his father. Priceless.
