It has been eight weeks of nervy drinks and relationship therapy for our couple in crisis and now it's time to look to the future as Nick Hornby's endlessly entertaining series concludes. The typically dry dialogue continues, considering the prospect of yet more counselling. If that means another season, count us in.

British Comedy Guide, 16th September 2019

Nick Hornby delivers a caustic take on a marriage in crisis in this short-form series following a couple trying to salvage their relationship through counselling. The first 10-minute episode sees Chris O'Dowd and Rosamund Pike skittishly working their way up to attending their first session from the pub opposite. Hornby's dialogue is on top form as they drily compare the relative merits of cancer to Ebola and dissect their nonexistent sex life. It's an engaging single-setting watch delivered in micro-form.
