Mark is the sensible one: a professional brogue wearer with a slightly worrying interest in World War Two. He is playing at being very serious and grown up and is a painfully conventional young man with a seething mass of self-loathing, ego and self-consciousness just below the surface. Mark believes nothing is achieved without work, blood, sweat and tears. In fact he masochistically relishes this belief.
In series three Mark finally managed to reach the hallowed ground of 'going out with' the long term object of his affections, Sophie. Before long though he had grown weary of the relationship he had been striving for so long to setup and was therefore looking for a way out. The slight technical hitch at the end of the series was that, instead of dumping Sophie, he 'accidentally' proposing to her instead!
In series four Mark had to face the horror of having to actually go through with the wedding. During the series he spent a horrific weekend with his fiancee's argumentative parents, tried to get his gym instructor sacked and went mad at a business conference! It culminated in Mark having to make the biggest decision of his life whilst hiding upstairs in church: marry Sophie, the woman he didn't love any more, or cancel the wedding and endure all the problems associated with that.
