Cold Feet is back, and I'm entirely unconvinced by the blossoming romance between Adam and Karen and its uugh-get-a-room-guys lasciviousness; even less so by the car park fights between David and Adam. Fortunately, we have a fine new strand, should they choose to further explore it, in Adam's inability to grasp the nuances of 2020 workplace interaction; luckily, too, they're all fine actors, and there are still many sparks to both performance and writing. But, come on, Adam's HR "joke" was not in any way funny. If this emerges, through wit, to encapsulate redemptions, forgiveness between generations, any one of which is at least confused as the next, it'll deserve to last. If it turns into a mockalong at older people, it'll be turning up its tootsies.

The Observer, 19th January 2020

Cold Feet is now a mature series in every sense of the word: it is beginning its ninth season and dealing with the triumphs and traumas of ongoing middle age. As we return, Jenny (Fay Ripley) has reached the end of her cancer treatment and James Nesbitt's Adam has landed himself in trouble at work.

Cold Feet review: Less than the sum of its parts

More than two decades since Cold Feet first arrived on screens, the new series is a curiously uneven watch - and not as much like putting on a comfy old cardy as you'd imagine.

Sean O'Grady, The Independent, 13th January 2020

Cold Feet, series 9, episode 1, review

A superior soap opera packing a real punch.

Mike Bullen says Cold Feet is taking break amid pay row

Fay Ripley says wages still vary between her and co-stars Hermione Norris, James Nesbitt, Robert Bathurst and John Thomson.
