"Cucumber" is a British television series set in Manchester, England. The show follows middle-aged manager Henry Best, who is a gay man in a long-term relationship with his live-in boyfriend. He soon finds himself in the throes of a full-blown midlife crisis, which causes him to break up with his boyfriend and move in with two younger roommates, which just exacerbates his loneliness and desire to break free of his humdrum life. The series was created by Russell T. Davies, who had a hand early on in the rebooted "Doctor Who" and also created the long-running, groundbreaking series "Queer as Folk" for Showtime.
