Mutual Friends

Episode guide

Episode One


Mutual Friends is a new comedy drama series following the trials and tribulations, highs and lows of the increasingly entangled lives of a group of old friends.


After the suicide of his best friend, Carl, solicitor Martin's world falls apart when his wife, Jen, tells him at the funeral that she slept with his now dead friend.


As the once happy couple struggle to hold their marriage together, Martin's pathologically immature but endlessly charming friend, Patrick, re-enters their lives and decides to help Martin through his troubles in his own inimitably hedonistic way.


Meanwhile, Jen receives support and advice from her best friend, Liz – who also happens to be Patrick's former fiancée.


Patrick discovers to his horror that Liz has now hooked up romantically with his business partner Harry who, in turn, is trying to force Patrick out of Qcumba – his mail-order clothing business.


Exploring issues of death, adultery, marriage, divorce, parenthood and even breaking and entering, with friends like these, who needs enemies?
