The original U.K. Series!!
Stuart Alan Jones (Aidan Gillen, The Wire) is rich, handsome, and an unrepentant rake, wreaking havoc on Manchester’s gay scene with his devil-may-care confidence and potent sexual charisma. His shy best friend, Vince Tyler (Craig Kelly, Titanic), harbors a not-so-secret crush on Stuart and frequently gets stuck cleaning up his messes. When Stuart has a tryst with teenager Nathan (Charlie Hunnam, Sons of Anarchy, Nicholas Nickleby)—newly out of the closet and bursting with excitement—the one-night stand changes their lives in unexpected ways.
This groundbreaking series by Russell T. Davies (Doctor Who) became a television phenomenon in the U.K. and inspired a long-running American remake. Witty, daring, and unapologetic, it celebrates gay culture while tackling universal themes of friendship, love, self-acceptance, and adulthood. Nominated for four BAFTAs (including best actor) and winner of a GLAAD Media Award for outstanding TV drama, the complete series 1 and 2 shine with “considerable complexity, insight, poignancy, and humor” (Los Angeles Times).
