Cold Feet

Series 9 - Episode 1

Review

As with our own real-life friends of long standing, we’re able to look at the Cold Feet gang and recognise their faults while continuing to love them. Take Adam (James Nesbitt), who, nine series in, is still a man-child whose inflated ego continues to land him in trouble. And yet, darn it, we can’t help rooting for the smirking, twinkly-eyed rogue, even here when he selfishly puts his fledgeling (and still slightly implausible) relationship with Karen before the happiness of his son.

The fallout from their decision to get together is being felt elsewhere too. David, for one, is finding it all very uneasy. Pete and Jen, meanwhile, are trying to cajole everyone into remaining close. But I can’t help but feel that, amid all this, some old plotline strands have been forgotten. Why, for instance, does Jen’s mum Barbara now seem perfectly fine when she appeared to have dementia a few years ago? And with Jen’s cancer fears still palpable, how come Adam never recalls the fact that he too had the disease back in the late 90s?

Summary

Adam finds himself in hot water at work, while his relationship with Karen continues to affect the group. Jenny has finished her cancer treatment, but her struggle is far from over, while David begins to see Mary in a new light. The return of Mike Bullen's comedy drama, starring James Nesbitt, Fay Ripley, Hermione Norris and Robert Bathurst.
