Cold Feet
The topic of babies comes up between Adam and Tina, but what do they want? Meanwhile, Peter arranges a tea dance and Karen meets with Justin's representative.

Further details

As Jenny revels in her newfound power, Pete begins to wonder just what he's unleashed.

Fresh from having sex, Adam announces that he and Tina would make great babies but Tina, caught off-guard, retorts that Adam would make a better Granddad! Adam tries to convince himself that he's happy to drop the idea of making babies, but now he's opened the door to the idea, Tina is in two minds about what she wants.

Meanwhile, a colleague at work with a familiar face remembers where they last met and decides they should best give each other a wide berth. Back home, no sooner has Matt given Adam and Tina some advice to help cut through their miscommunication; he has a revelation of his own that knocks Adam for six.

Karen meets Benjamin Stevens; Justin's representative and polar opposite. Her new business partner is concerned by the health of her accounts - and diva Bridie's next novel isn't forthcoming either. Karen piles on the pressure, but how far can she push her golden goose before she stops laying?

Happy in his new role as Entertainments Manager, Pete arranges a tea dance at the care home, where Adam and David receive some sage advice in return for their fancy footwork. David thinks he's in need of a makeover if he's to keep up with a woman like Nikki. Using Adam's interactive work website, the gang make David look a million dollars - which isn't too far off the price tag!

Jenny inadvertently drops her colleagues in it when she tells her boss they could afford to lose a few employees. She will get to choose who makes the cut, but Pete is horrified that she's doing the dirty work. As Jenny starts to spout business jargon in the home, her new power-mad persona begins to drive a wedge between them. Pete doesn't like what he sees, but Jenny maintains it's just business - Right?

More midlife-crisis drama from a show that once felt like an event, but now bumbles along in inoffensive and unremarkable style. It still boasts a cast of middlebrow troupers (including James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris and Fay Ripley) with decent chemistry, but feels oddly flat. The emotional heart of this new run looks to be Adam and Tina's agonising over starting a family; whether that will be enough to sustain viewer engagement remains to be seen.
