Cucumber

The passions and pitfalls of 21st century gay life

A new drama from Russell T Davies (Queer As Folk, Doctor Who). Life for 46 year old Henry and his boyfriend Lance is comfortable and settled. But after the most disastrous date night in history - involving a threesome, two police cars, and Boney M - Henry's old life shatters, and his new life begins. While Lance gets to know the mysterious Daniel, Henry soon finds himself with unexpected companions - 24 year old Freddie and 19 year old Dean. Can men from such different generations ever get on? Henry's sister Cleo can only stand and watch as Henry's life spins off in wild new directions. And with his dangerous old friend Cliff prowling around, Henry has to think fast, and forge a whole new life, while facing truths about himself which challenge his entire identity. With the same ferocious wit, startling honesty and heartfelt warmth that made Queer As Folk a landmark series, Cucumber explores the passions and pitfalls of 21st century gay life for Henry, Lance and their family and friends.
