At times comedic and at other times heartbreaking, the series follows the intertwining lives of three Manchester couples at different stages in their relationships. At the start, Adam Williams and Rachel Bradley are a new couple. Adam's best friend Pete Gifford and his wife Jenny are adjusting to life as new parents. While Rachel's friends Karen and David Marsden fear the possible disintegration of their marriage. Other reoccurring characters include the Marsden's nanny, Ramona, and, in later series, Rachel's coworker Jo Ellison. Poignantly true to life but with fantastical twists the drama/sitcom explorers all the ups and downs of romance. Written by
'At Home With The Braithwaites' was fantastic, but lacked the warmth; 'The Darling Buds of May' was lovely, but lacked the realism; 'Cold Feet' just had it all.....
Often compared to 'Friends' which I view as a two-dimensional, superficial string of only-occasionally-funny-but-more-so-puerile-gags aimed at the teenage market, 'Cold Feet' was so much more than this. Mike Bullen created and wrote with stunning ingenuity an intelligent, warm, funny, sad, tragic, weird-at-times-yet-deep-down realistic piece of quality comedy-drama. I have yet to see something of the same genre supersede or even match its standards of acting, writing and direction. Absolutely wonderful.
