Mutual Friends (2008)

Marc Warren, Alexander Armstrong and Keeley Hawes star in a new comedy-drama series, following the trials, tribulations, highs and lows of the increasingly entangled lives of a group of old friends.

Following the suicide of his best friend, Carl, solicitor Martin's world falls apart when his wife, Jen, tells him at the funeral that she slept with his late friend – twice. As the once-happy couple struggle to hold their marriage together, Martin's pathologically immature but endlessly charming friend, Patrick, re-enters their lives and decides to help Martin through his troubles in his own inimitably hedonistic way.

Meanwhile, Jen receives support and advice from her best friend, Liz, who also happens to be Patrick's ex-fiancée. To make matters even more complicated, Liz has now hooked up romantically with Patrick's business partner Harry who, in turn, is trying to force Patrick out of Qcumba, his mail-order catalogue business.

The series explores issues such as death, adultery, marriage, divorce, parenthood and even breaking and entering but, with friends like these, who needs enemies?
