Series eight of the midlife melodrama concludes with an ineffectual finale. First we are titillated with rumours that "Adam is seeing someone", which jar incongruously with a moving cancer storyline courtesy of Jen. Next, David plays good Samaritan before everything comes up roses. Too predictable by half.

Cold Feet has finally become must-watch TV

The drama about middle-class Mancunians has hit its stride at long last - thanks largely to a love affair that's been bubbling under since the 90s.

Cold Feet, episode 6: review

James Nesbitt's Adam has finally grown up - his relationship with Karen (Hermione Norris/p]) has been a highlight in a superlative series.
