    Stuart Jones (Aidan Gillen) has got it all. He's rich, drop-dead gorgeous and always the centre of attention. He can be forgiven the arrogance because he's pretty close to perfection. His best mate Vince Tyler (Craig Kelly) is funny, adorable and definitely a babe but, unlike his friend, has zero confidence in himself. Since time began, Vince has carried a torch for Stuart but his love remains firmly unrequited. They're both 29, hitting Canal Street every night, stalwarts of the scene but just starting to wonder where else their lives may be going. Then along comes Nathan Maloney (Charlie Hunnam). Young, wild and coming out with a vengeance, he crowbars his way into their world and once he arrives, nothing is ever the same again.moreless

    Who says good reading is good for you? American Claire has just moved to Glasgow and is extremely keen to meet some new and interesting people. She decides to start a book group. To her utter dismay, those who turn up for the first session are not the friends she had hoped for. There's Kenny, a handsome ex-climber in a wheelchair, Janice the frustrated wife of a famous Scottish footballer, and eccentric student Barney who Claire actually does fancy. The Book Group is about this intriguing cast of characters, who are all trying to make new friends, new lives and new versions of themselves. But pretty soon things get complicated. A little education can be a dangerous thing. Bad News! Channel 4 did confirm a third series was in the works due for broadcast mid 2004, However, I received an email from Annie Griffin (Creator of the show) explaining that no third series was in production for 2004, nor had she even yet written a third series due to commitments towards other projects, "...but perhaps some time in the future they'll be back" Currently I shall leave the status of the show as on hiatus, for it may return.moreless
