Review

There are signs that the little group of pals is splintering due to some big emotional upheavals in Mike Bullen’s drama. It’s a mark of his writing and the ensemble acting that we still care about Karen, David, Jen, Pete and Adam as they each confront troubles and sorrows.

Jen (Fay Ripley) is growing bored with being married to the lumpen Pete (John Thomson) and wants more out of life than sitting on the sofa, watching Dragons’ Den (the real-life Dragons make a guest appearance in a fantasy sequence).

Karen (Hermione Norris) is picking up the pieces after the mini-breakdown that, oddly, no one mentions, and dates a rather nice man after they share a little moment in a bookshop. While Adam (James Nesbitt) has played with fire, but can’t resist returning to the flames. In an incendiary final sequence both he and girlfriend Tina get burned.

Summary

With her professional and personal life finally back on track, Karen meets attractive well-read builder Gareth, and after much deliberation agrees to go on a date with him. Adam and Pete find themselves cornered into holding a joint 50th birthday dinner. However, celebrations quickly unravel as a surprise visitor with an unexpected revelation threatens to cut the evening short - with Pete hearing some home truths. Robert Glenister guest stars, with James Nesbitt, Leanne Best, Hermione Norris, Robert Bathurst and John Thomson.
