Russell T. Davies writes this drama exploring the many facets of contemporary sex culture. "Cucumber" delves into 21st-century gay life through Henry and boyfriend Lance. Though Henry and Lance live a comfortable life and are settled in their relationship, everything changes after a disastrous date night. The night -- which ends in a death, a threesome, two police cars and Boney M -- shatters 46-year-old Henry's life, and he must move on to new pastures. Henry moves into a house-share with unexpected roommates, handsome Freddie and 19-year-old Dean. Whether these new companions become his friends or foes remains to be seen.
