Having ended yet another relationship ladies' man Adam Williams goes to the pub with best friend Pete Gifford. Pete brings him home to the annoyance of his wife Jenny,who is especially fertile and anxious to make a baby. Next day in a supermarket car park Adam's car collides with that of Rachel,whose boyfriend Simon has just announced that he is leaving her to work in Hong Kong. There is attraction between Adam and Rachel,whose friends Karen and David urge her to go on a date. After seeing a particularly bad play Rachel and Adam sleep together but,though things seem to be going well,they argue and Simon returns to tell Rachel he is not going to Hong Kong after all. Determined not to let Rachel go Adam makes a grand - and very bare - gesture involving a rose,which wins her back. Jenny discovers that she is pregnant whilst Karen persuades David to get a nanny for their son. Written by don @ minifie-1

Absolutely superb!
8 October 2002 | by (Co. Durham, England) – See all my reviews

Absolutely superb! One of the real gems to come out of British television in the last 10 years.

Accomplished actors Helen Baxendale and James Nesbitt give good performances as smarmy couple Rachel Bradley and Adam Williams and their eventful life together in modern Manchester, and old-fashioned, middle-class snob David Marsden is excellently played by Robert Bathurst, as he struggles to balance family life with being a respectable businessman. The virtually unknown Hermione Norris is equally as suited to her role as not-so-snobbish, bored housewife and mother Karen, David's wife, and executes some inch-perfect one-liners with accurate timing, exposing her potential as a great comic actress of the future.

But undoubtedly the stars of the show must be John Thomson, who plays Pete Gifford and, in particular, the outstanding Fay Ripley, as his long-suffering wife Jenny. With this couple we encounter childbirth, divorce, affairs and even Jenny moving away to America.

No wonder 9 million people think like me, this mix of normal life in Northern England is superbly scripted and directed and has all the elements to make it the great success that it has and will continue to become - a case of warm smiles rather than cold feet.
