Talk To Me, 4 x 1hour episodes for ITV1. Created by Danny Brocklehurst. This is a warm hearted show about modern relationships and modern lives. It’s Cold Feet – with tough edges.

Mitch is Woody’s best friend, but he also loves Claire. Mitch can’t have the woman he loves without destroying the most important friendship in his life, but can he ignore his smouldering feelings, and can Claire resist his charms?…

(according to Josephs interview, Mitch and Claire have an affair and all hell breaks loose!)
