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
The first draft of the pilot episode script set the characters in North London. The setting was moved to Manchester because it was cheaper to film there and would be easier for television audiences to relate to. See more »
This program is excellent, no idea what hexa-2 is on about, midlands?? the program is set in Manchester for starters not the midlands, idiot!
All the characters are brilliant actors pull off each role perfectly, watched the whole series and would suggest it to any one who wants the English version of friends. Slightly different to friends its more realistic and its British so much better! The main story starts off about characters Adam and Rachael but by series 2 the whole cast are involved in the main story lines.
Finished in 2003 there are 5 series to watch with about 6 -8 episodes in each. Can buy the box set in most DVD shops for about 20-30 pounds.
