Cold Feet

Series 6 - Episode 1



A return to Cold Feet? After what, 13, 14 years? Mmm, that can’t be a good idea, surely? Actually, yes it can, it works brilliantly; there’s a real sense that time has passed and we’re meeting up with a solid bunch of pals who are still together, despite some savage knocks along the way. They are older, yes, and maybe just a bit wiser.

Writer/creator Mike Bullen hasn’t gone for a clean-slate reboot, so this revisit feels unforced and natural. Adam, Pete, Jen, David and Karen have a shared history and a genuine hinterland, and their stories aren’t over.

Bullen was always great at emotional switchbacks, so once again we laugh a lot as the gang reunite, but a tear is never far away. Particularly because the ghost of Adam’s wife Rachel still haunts the little group. Oh, and the soundtrack is as good as ever thanks to those balladeers for middle-aged men everywhere, Richard Hawley and Guy Garvey.


The comedy drama about a group of friends returns after a break of more than 13 years, catching up with the lives of Adam Williams, David and Karen Marsden and Pete and Jenny Gifford. The gang is reunited when Adam turns up in Manchester to announce his impending marriage, but not everyone is as thrilled as he is. Without the blessing of his friends and family, Adam begins to have doubts. Starring John Thomson, James Nesbitt, Fay Ripley, Hermione Norris and Robert Bathurst.
