Metropolis (ITV 2000, Matthew Rhys, Louise Lombard)

Drama series Metropolis took us into the intertwined lives of 6 long time friends who all met at University but are now living in London.

The casting was excellent and the overall vibe was kind of a more with it Cold Feet but the show suffered badly from haphazard scheduling sometimes shown Mondays, sometimes Tuesdays and from having different lengths for some of the shows one going out as a half hour, others a full hour.
