Both rally their friends and head for The Temple of Woman - a prodding, waxing, tweezing beauty salon for Susan, a whooping, hollering lap-dancing club for Steve where Jeff bumps into an old friend…

Inspired by Steven Moffat’s relationship with his wife Sue Vertue, Coupling is a British sitcom produced by the BBC following the dating and sexual mishaps and successes of six thirtysomething best friends.
