    Which was the TV show in the early 2000s about plus-size British single women?

    Coupling is a British television sitcom that ran on BBC2 from 12 May 2000 to 14 June 2004 and was written by Steven Moffat. The show, which is produced by Hartswood Films for the BBC, focuses on the dating, sexual experiences, and misfortunes of six friends in their early 30s. It frequently depicts the three women and three men talking to each other about the same occurrences, but in completely different worlds.

    Moffat’s friendship with producer Sue Vertue influenced the series so much that two of the characters were named after them. Coupling is an example of the ‘group genre,’ which was a popular ensemble show at the time. The show was compared to the American comedy Friends and Seinfeld by critics.

    The show received mostly excellent reviews, and it was nominated “Best TV Comedy” at the 2003 British Comedy Awards. The show began with low ratings, but as time went on, its popularity grew, and by the end of the third series, the show had gained respectable ratings in the United Kingdom.


    Beginning in late 2002, the series aired on PBS stations and BBC America in the United States, where it immediately garnered a devoted following. The show is broadcast all around the world. In 2003 and 2007, respectively, short-lived American and Greek adaptations were developed. Coupling placed in 54th place in a 2004 poll to determine Britain’s Best Sitcom.

    During the first week of each production block, all of the location sequences for each series were shot in London. Because Moffat was notorious for delivering the final few scripts of each series late, the episodes lacked location footage. In the first season, the outside shots of the bar were shot in Clerkenwell.
