The title pretty much sums up the concept. Gary (Martin Clunes) and his flatmates live a bachelor's life in London. They often engage in binge drinking and trying to lure women into having sex with them, which frequently ends in rejection and conflict with their partners. From the second series onward Gary's flatmate Dermot (Harry Enfield) is replaced by his new lodger Tony (Neil Morrissey).
Following the end of the seventh series, some further episodes were produced. A Christmas Special in 1997, followed by three episodes under the title Last Orders that were first broadcast Christmas 1998, a Comic Relief Special in 1999, and a Stand Up To Cancer & The Feeling Nuts Comedy Night Special in 2014. Prior to the broadcast of the seventh series another Comic Relief Special was aired in March 1997.
