Episode 2

 

After hearing some harsh home-truths from Matt, Adam seeks counselling in the form of Drama Therapy. He ends up acting out scenarios but struggles to see the merit in it. His perseverance stirs up unexpected emotions and he’s surprised to learn what’s really behind his inability to commit to relationships.

 

As the twins’ 18th birthday approaches, Karen’s still grappling with parenthood; she’s baffled by the constant stream of packages arriving for Ellie and is appalled when she learns how Ellie’s coming by them. Karen turns to Adam for help, but struggling with being a single parent himself, he doesn’t know what to suggest. Initially, that is. 

 

Pete takes Evan the ‘jumper’ on as a cause; he saved his life, now he wants to save his soul. Jenny grapples with her secret, despite it being harder and harder to keep it to herself. Pete’s preoccupation with Evan leads him to let young Adam down which aggravates an already sensitive Jenny. 

 

Instead of living the high life, David struggles with the emasculation of being a kept man. Nikki tries to be understanding but as tensions increase, their relationship begins to falter.

 

Series overview

 

Award winning comedy drama COLD FEET returns for an eighth series; Adam (James Nesbitt) is back on the singles market, but for once in his life he’s not finding any takers – has he finally lost his mojo? 

 

Pete (John Thomson) on the other hand appears to have found his and, having recently renewed their wedding vows, some alfresco action is the icing on Pete and Jen's cake. However, mature student Jenny's (Fay Ripley) happiness is short lived when some unexpected news sends her into a tailspin.  

 

Fiercely independent Karen is more interested in work than relationships, especially when a mystery author’s manuscript lands on her desk. 

 

Meanwhile, David (Robert Bathurst) and Nikki (Siobhan Finneran) are enjoying a more frugal life when Nikki’s divorce settlement comes through tipping the balance. How far will David go to protect his pride?  

 

Packed full of highs and heart-breaking lows, COLD FEET follows a tight-knit group of friends as they navigate their way through mid-life, facing whatever life throws at them, together.
