Episode 4: The Agreement

Episode 4 of 6

Philip Jackson, Alison Steadman, James Northcote and Rasmus Hardiker star. This week, Andy and Jeff have had enough of each other. Does Couples Therapy hold the answer?

Andy (James Northcote) and Jeff (Philip Jackson) find they have a big problem to solve - each other.

Fish Shop Frank (Mark Benton) suggests Couples Therapy as it worked so well for his ex-wife (and for him too, if he’d turned up). After a session with unorthodox therapist Dr Coulson (Alison Steadman), the treatment is such a success that Andy decides to move out.

Jeff, though wounded, puts a brave face on it and gets on with his life as best he can. Meanwhile, Andy, by contrast, is living the high life. He’s run into an old friend from London, Sean (Rasmus Hardiker), and they’re visiting nightclubs and restaurants and comedy gigs together.

Will Andy learn to appreciate true friendship? Will Jeff stop complaining about Andy cluttering up the hall with his shoes? When will Andy start to miss the plain but honest things that Jeff has to offer - like a really fierce and satisfying game of Scrabble?
