Product Description

Every episode from all five series of the British TV drama following the fortunes of three couples as they try to negotiate love and life. In series one, each couple experiences some form of difficulty over pregnancy and childbirth, while the temptation of adultery is never far away. In series two Rachel (Helen Baxendale) and Adam (James Nesbitt) have split up, putting their friends in an awkward position. Series three sees Karen (Hermione Norris) and David (Robert Bathurst) struggling to cope with their new children, Jenny (Fay Ripley) and Pete (John Thomson) coming to terms with Pete's adultery and Rachel and Adam getting back together. In series four Adam loses his job and the couple face financial ruin. In the final series a tragedy brings all the friends back together.

From Amazon.co.uk

Before Cold Feet, there was sitcom and there was drama. This 1997 newcomer straddled both worlds effortlessly and single-handedly seemed to create a new genre. The programme introduced three Manchester couples at different stages of the relationship development continuum: Adam and Rachel, in the early throws of new-found love; Pete and Jenny, making their first foray into parenthood; and David and Karen, the immediately recognisable modern-day parents. Over the course of five series, creator Mike Bullen drags these hugely appealing characters through virtually the entire range of emotions, using intense and often sensitive storylines but never forgetting that Cold Feet is also a comedy: one of Bullen's greatest triumphs is in making events from everyday life appear totally familiar yet achingly funny.

James Nesbitt all but steals the show with his highly accomplished portrayal of Adam Williams, the laddish, loveable rogue, ever ready with a witty remark, blunt observation or hilarious put-down. His stop-start relationship with the lovely Rachel (Helen Baxendale) settles into married bliss in Series 3 … for a time. The culmination of their relationship in the final series is an absolute heartbreaker. Adam's best mate Pete (John Thomson) is a genuine, down-to-earth guy, usually down on his luck. Thomson excels in his role as he stumbles through fatherhood, careers into an affair, then struggles with a long-drawn out separation from childhood sweetheart Jenny (Faye Ripley at her brilliant best). In true Pete style, he reaches rock bottom before Aussie stunner Jo (Kimberley Joseph) walks into his life with the tantalising offer of true happiness. In the third household, David and Karen have possibly the most turbulent relationship. Hermione Norris as Karen is the long-suffering wife of a snobbish middle manager (Robert Bathhurst), delivering a particularly powerful performance in the fourth series as her world crumbles around her. From Series 1 until the end, husband and wife are torn between their comfortable home and family life on one hand and their search for extra-marital excitement on the other--a fascinating, comical and sometimes brutal take on modern matrimony.

By the end of the fifth series, the protagonists have each gone though several lifetimes' worth of emotion, but the conclusion doesn't seek to tie up the numerous loose ends; life just isn't like that. Soaring above the inevitable difficulties in ending such a popular, long-running comedy-drama, the final episodes provide a memorable and fitting finale. --David Thwaites

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value 11 Nov 2003
By Michael Scott VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Can I just comment on what superb value this is!
5 series in one cheap box set! Great
Would like to see other TV shows doing this and not trying to break their series up into 10 DVD's per series.
Very good value and a great comedy.
Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the BEST!!!! 24 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I started watching Cold Feet in Australia back in 1999 and absolutely got hooked on this British comical yet real life drama series. It really does take a good look at couples in their 30's and the sagas that surround them; such as: marriage or not, extra marital affairs, friendships, family and so forth. It also gives the audience an insight into British life and in part class differences. You will feel the highs and lows without a doubt and enjoy the humour as well as the seriousness of it all. I liked all the characters....their weaknesses and strengths....and wish the series didnt have to finish.
But there is that saying: "All good things must come to an end!".

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional Roller Coaster 18 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
Well I just watched the complete series of Cold Feet....How do I feel? Emotionally drained. I went through a half box of Tissues..Thank god the wife is in Townesville as I do not want her to see a 43 year old man crying his eyes out. This series would have to be the closest thing to real life that I have seen. All the life emotions are there and if you hav'nt seen it, then you really are missing out on a superb piece of television
I dont know why I cried (well I do) but I'm glad I did and you will to. The last 2 episodes are so heart wrenching yet so satisfying it will make you glad you own it.

I knew I liked this series when I bought it, I only found out how much after sitting through all 5 series. There is a good mix of comedy, realism (well almost) and some great surreal 'out-take' moments. I even gave these to my 'foreign' colleagues at work and we ended up having a party to watch the last 3 episodes and now they frequently quote English phrases in mancunian tones! Excellent ...! Rather Cold Feet than 'Fools & Horses'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Knocks 'Freinds' into a cocked hat 15 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The first series of Cold Feet is a 'must see', especially on DVD. The pilot episode is hysterical, and from there you watch the characters and relationships develop, in this microcosm of British life. Anyone watching this will see a part of themselves in one or more of the characters at some point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent viewing 9 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
There never has been , and I don't think there ever will be a series as excellent as Cold Feet. This superbly casted series has made me both laugh and cry over the years (I've watched these DVDs so often, I think I might need to replace some of them!!!). The storyline is very realistic and while mostly humorous, treats delicate issues with an intuitive sensitivity. If you haven't seen this series already, go out and buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars No need to wait for the replays anymore 12 Oct 2003
By "ludwa"
Format:DVD
Cold Feet is my favourite tv-program ever. It combined humour with personal tragedies in a brilliant way. The actors were all great but especially the always excellent playing Adam Nesbitt has to be mentioned. From the troubles with Rachel's abortion until her sad dead, the Cold Feet series surprised me every week. After a while as the viewer you started liking/loving all the characters and it was a great time knowing every sunday there were new adventures coming. Alas all good things have to end, but that's the way it should be. With this DVD we can see it all back and enjoy it again and again. Let's hope in a few years there will be another great tv program as this one.

OK, looks a little bit dated ( were phones really that big?) but fantastic acting and sharp and funny dialogue makes this better than 95% of stuff on TV at the moment.
