Sharing a flat with would-be stand up comic Naomi Effy is now the office junior at the hedge fund department of Hewitt Maurice asset management fund. To avoid a friend getting into trouble Effy stands in for her boss Victoria and takes it upon herself to deal with valued client Max Stibbard,who is impressed. As a result Jake,the head of the firm gives Effy the chance to be a dealer and,helped by the lovelorn Dominic from the research department,pulls off an impressively lucrative deal. Effy is now mixing with high-flying financiers and Naomi is appalled at her friend's shallow behaviour,especially as Naomi admits to having cancer. Effy however is on a roll and embarks upon an affair with Jake. At the same time it is noticed that market returns are not matching the firm's returns. Written by don @ minifie-1

A last dying effort to get the good ratings back?
12 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Skins the end? Since they brought back the old characters I assume the season 5-6 didn't really do as well as they hoped. That said this new series with Effy as main character, lack the chemistry you had in the old seasons. It feels like Effy isn't a strong enough character in this show, to carry it the way they mean to. Working at the stock marked was a bit to high up at the food chain to able to identify with, I mean if she had some crummy job in a coffee shop and a shitty boss, that would be something people could relate to, cause everybody been there onetime or another in life. The whole cancer drama thing didn't really fit. Things like that you need to work up a care for the character, which in this case you really didn't get to do. Yes you followed her in the 4th season but time has passed since than, and besides she didn't have to create the drama all alone than. I have no problem with showing them now as adults out in the "real world" But I found it a bit boring, and not really caring for any of them, since their characters was so flat
