Northern Lights / City Lights - The Series

Both series of the popular ITV comedy drama starring Robson Green and Mark Benton. Happily married to sisters, living next door to each other and even working for the same company, Howie (Benton) and Colin (Green) test their friendship and their wives' patience to the limit as they strive to outdo each others achievements.

Northern Lights includes six episodes, plus the original Christmas Lights special.

In City Lights, on a Saturday shopping trip in Manchester's city centre, the boys get into a row over a parking space with an aggressive stranger. They are forced to back off, and with the incident soon forgotten, they sneak off to the pub whilst their wives Jackie (Nicola Stephenson) and Pauline (Sian Reeve), are otherwise engaged. But when the mysterious stranger is gunned down in front of their eyes, the boys become the only witnesses to a vicious gangland execution. And before they have a chance to argue about whose fault it is, they are informed that their own lives are in danger and they will have to join the Witness Protection Programme - leaving behind everything they know and starting new lives with their families in London.
