    Jeff. Oliver was no Jeff. Jeff's awkwardness, scariness, and over all ability to be humliated in the funniest of ways is irreplacible!!!

    I must join the bandwagon and do agree wholeheartedly that there is no replacement for Richard Coyle, a.k.a Jeff.  He had the best lines ever, not to mention hilarious stand-alone antics no one can keep a straight face through.  I am disappointed that he left to do another show, "Strange" I think.  Too bad, he always made me laugh nonstop.

    Jeff was a total legend and there was no way they could ever replace him.

    BUT Oliver was asked to do an impossible task; replace Jeff. And- to be fair- HOW WELL DID HE DO! it coiuld have been so much worse; I think he did a fantastic Job, but jeff will always be the coupling legend.

    I agree, replacing Jeff seemed next to impossible, but Oliver was okay.

    Ditto, there was no way to replace Jeff but they didn't find a bad replacement, Oliver is a good character to have on board it's just a shame that Jeff had to go

    Jeff was BRILLIANT!!! Oliver is much too normal to replace Jeff ... Jeff lived in his own world, with his own set of rules and his own dictionary I really do NOT get why he had to be replaced :'(

    Oh, please! I wanted to rate this show a "10" but had to take back half a point for Oliver. Maybe if the writers and producers hadn't tried to make him such a Jeff clone I could've gone the full 10.

    Okay, he wasn't THAT bad, but I'd definitely pick Jeff.

    Mind you, Oliver's scene with Jane and the toilet rolls had me on the floor...

    No doubt, Jeff!! I felt that Oliver was too like Jeff and should have been his own character rather than an obvious replacement.

    Jeff was always funny, he always had at least two hilarious one liners in each episode, Oliver to me just seemed fake.

    Without a doubt, Jeff. Oliver was fine but he never felt to be part of the "Coupling" family. It'll be Jeff everytime for me i'm afraid.

    I would like to see them both, but only because Oliver & Jane got on so well. Put it this way, Jeff was in 3 seasons, Oliver: 1. Oliver is just as crazy as Jane. Jeff was crazy, too, but not the same way as Jane, they just didn't mesh. Everyone keeps saying that Oliver was too like Jeff, and while he was an obvious replacement, he was not like Jeff, he even had that stupid catch phrase: "Craziness". Oliver was ok, but everytime he said that, I wanted to slap him! It was stupid & annoying. But anyway, i kinda ranted there, i vote for both.

    I just love Jeff - both would be interesting, but if I could only have one it would be Jeff hands down
