Six Degrees of Doctor Who
This is an excellent miniseries written by Russel T. Davies about a gay man, Bob (darling Alan Davies from QI), and a straight woman, Rose (fantastic Lesley Sharp from also RTD's "The Second Coming"), who fall in love and the consequent rejection they suffer from their friends. Six episodes of possibly RTD's finest work. It's moving and funny and Bob and Rose make a charming and sexy couple.|
A few squees for Doctor Who fans: Bob's mom (you'll LOVE her) is played by Penelope Wilton (Harriet Jones) and she talks about Hannibal crossing the Alps! Also, Bob's best friend is played by Jessica Hynes (Joan Redfern in Season 3, an interesting role reversal ;)).
If you search for "Bob and Rose" on guba.com you can see the episodes via streaming and/or direct download. *wanders off whistling*
A a sidenote, thanks for the "Takin' Over the Asylum" recommendation y'all. Loved it! "I don't have to conform to the vagaries of Time and Space. I'm a Loony for God's sake!" Hee!
