Last Year Cold Feet fans were delighted to see the Bafta-winning series return after a 13-year absence. Ratings for that season and the just-broadcast seventh series suggested that viewers’ love for the Manchester-based show was still strong, with millions tuning in to catch up on the lives of Adam, Jenny, Pete, Karen and David. The Irish author Carmel Harrington was asked to bridge the gap from the original storyline to the current one, in her novel Cold Feet: The Missing Years. The friends’ circumstances may have changed, but the bonds are as strong as ever. New characters are introduced alongside the original ones, adding a dimension to the heart-warming humour. From Manchester to Belfast and back, the novel spans a year of tears, laughter and friendship in true Cold Feet style. Harrington has captured the characters’ colloquialisms, personalities and group dynamic. An immensely enjoyable companion to the TV show.
