Following the suicide of his best friend, solicitor Martin's world falls apart when his wife tells him at the funeral that she slept with his late friend - twice. As the once-happy couple struggle to hold their marriage together, an old friend of Martin's re-enters their lives and decides to help him through his troubles in his own inimitably hedonistic way.
Patrick is trying to help Martin to cope with his marital problems by subjecting him to an energetic reintroduction to the life of a single man, with vigorous mountain bike-riding, rounds of golf and marathon computer games sessions fuelled by a diet of pizza, beer and skunk.
On Liz's advice, Jen decides to apply for a job, only to find that it is based in Norwich.
Martin discovers that Carl had a second mortgage on another house, and that as a result, his widow Leigh is now bankrupt. Meanwhile he is under pressure from his boss Sarah to hang onto the lucrative Qcumba case.
Following his massive intake of cannabinoids, Martin leaves hospital and is reconciled with Jen, but he's frustrated when she won't have sex with him. Meanwhile, Patrick vows to launch a new global clothing company and starts viewing unsuitably grandiose potential offices.
When Leigh's house is repossessed, a guilty Jen asks her and her three young sons to come and stay. Martin, who is trying to get their marriage back on track, is not happy. Patrick and Martin take Dan and Leigh's troublesome eldest son to a snooker club to let Jen, Leigh, Liz and Anita have a boozy girls' night in, with the unfortunate consequence that Liz drunkenly sleeps with Patrick after he offers her a lift home.
At Anita and Dev's anniversary party, Dev tries to kiss Leigh. Liz warns Patrick that sleeping with him meant nothing, while Martin and Jen finally revive their sex life. Emboldened by this change of fortune, Martin attempts a reconciliation between Patrick and Liz, but discovers that Patrick is entertaining another woman.
Jen and Martin start trying for a baby, but Martin struggles to deliver the goods. To make matters worse, his now-pregnant boss Sarah threatens to fire him unless he brings in more business.
News of Sarah's pregnancy comes as a shock to Patrick, with whom she's been having an affair - but he's even more surprised when the identity of the baby's father is revealed.
Jen persuades a jobless Martin to meet her employer, Darren, but he considers the jobs on offer to be 'beneath him' and reluctantly volunteers to teach reading at Dan's school.
Having been dropped by Sarah for failing to pay any fees, Patrick talks Martin into taking on his case against Harry over the ownership of Qcumba. Martin tries to keep this a secret from Jen.
Sarah acts on behalf of Harry, who offers Patrick a large pay-off if he agrees to stay away from Liz.
In the midst of her wedding preparations, Liz begins to have doubts about her real feelings for Harry.
Meanwhile, Dev's mad passion for Leigh comes to an embarrassing head at a boating regatta.
The wedding looms and there is an atmosphere of impending mayhem as everyone converges on the country house hotel for the reception.
Humiliatingly, Martin is now a dogsbody at Harry's beck and call, and even has to take on the job of stand-in when the first choice for best man misses his flight.
Patrick, denying he is upset by Liz getting married, turns up at the hotel and runs up a huge bill against Harry's account, while Anita finds out about Dev's misplaced crush and confronts a startled Leigh.
Later, Harry orders Martin to keep Liz's divorced parents apart. Martin is pleasantly surprised when his schoolboy crush, the gorgeous Ally, is one of the wedding guests. She is now divorced and delighted to see Martin again. Jen and Ally, however, do not hit it off.
Liz's dad goes missing and Martin recruits Patrick to help find him and get him to the church. Patrick vows to tell Liz his feelings. He and Martin have to take a lift on a tractor in their dash to get to the wedding on time.
