A gritty, uplifting drama of love and illness. Construction worker and keen amateur footballer Nick Cameron (Robert Carlyle) has the best of everything when he meets and moves in with soulmate Karen (Juliet Aubrey). But complications arise when symptoms of a mysterious illness including numbness and double vision begin to sap his energy. As MS sets in, his physical powers quickly diminish and he loses his job, his sport and his sexual drive. Eroded by frustration, anger and self-pity, Nick lashes out at Karen, even accusing her of sleeping with her boss. At his lowest ebb, summoning vestiges of pride and self-sacrifice, Nick urges Karen to leave him. Will she accept an easy escape from his despondency and rancour, or stand by this frail shell of the man she fell in love with? Heart-wrenching, intense and unforgettable, the raw emotion is cut with laddish dark humour, and the electrifying central performances are supported by engaging early screen appearances by James Nesbitt and Sophie Okonedo. First shown as part of BBC Two's ?Love Bites' season of dramas in 1995, and now released on DVD, writers Jimmy McGovern and Paul Henry Powell who drew on his own experiences battling MS shared the Royal Television Society's Best Writer award the following year.
