Three episodes in, Mike Bullen's dramedy reboot has found its groove. Principally, that's because, after an opener that came across as a frantic James Nesbitt vehicle, it's back to being an authentic ensemble piece - and one with real depth as its characters deal with the difficulties, disappointments and general sagginess of middle-aged life. Tonight, David faces an early morning trip to the cop shop and a lapse in judgment causes problems for Jenny.

Cold Feet recap: WTF! Where did the pillow come from?

With stalking, cheating, depression and assault, there are way too many issues being shoehorned in at once. How will the gang ever survive a whole series?
