We pick up the story as it was left at the end of series seven when, on New Year's Eve, Mark asked Dobby, his girlfriend, to move in with him. She agreed, and Jeremy was faced with the prospect of moving out to make way. It's a month or so later, and Mark is still waiting for Jeremy to leave. In the meantime, Mark is becoming increasingly jealous of Gerrard, his rival for Dobby's affections. Because Gerrard is so sickly, Dobby constantly makes visits to his flat to look after him, and Mark is beginning to worry that she'll move in with his rival instead. Meanwhile Jeremy, realising that his life to date has amounted to very little, decides to visit a therapist. When Mark gets himself a job in a bathroom fittings shop, and Jeremy finds therapy beneficial, things begin to take a positive turn, until that is, an unforeseen tragic event hits them both like a bolt from the blue.
