In an effort to impress his gourmand American girlfriend, Mischa, Steve
Coogan has accepted a commission from The Observer newspaper to go on a
restaurant tour of the north of England. However, when Mischa (who was meant
to accompany him on the trip) insists that they take a break from their
relationship and returns to America, Steve is forced to invite colleague and
friend-of-sorts Rob Brydon.

Throughout the series the two constantly bicker and attempt to undermine and
outdo each other, especially in the presence of any attractive women they
encounter. Steve has a number of one-night stands but is increasingly
revealed to be in a rut both professionally and personally: at one point 
as Steve gets stuck attempting to cross a river using a series of stepping
stones  Rob shouts out to him, "You're stuck in a metaphor!"

The competitive atmosphere between the two is occasionally broken by
passages of amicable and spontaneous comic improvisation, with each riffing
off the other's ideas.
