Pete is hurt by Chloe's initial reaction to Grant's bombshell but Grant's cowardly response ultimately solves matters for the Giffords whilst Karen is enjoying her solo business with an added bonus ...
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. The later series picks up their stories over a decade later.Written by
Four 90-minute episodes were made and broadcast for the fifth series in 2003 but, for international distribution and the DVD release, they were edited into six episodes of various lengths, causing several plotlines to make no sense. See more »
'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.
