Man suffers heart attack - discovered dead on sofa by friend/lover.


British, 2010s, probably a TV miniseries, but might be a movie (definitely not a soap opera).
Details are sketchy. A female character is very fond of a work colleague (might be her employer), and I believe they are approaching retirement age. There are problems of some kind at the workplace - which might have been an ad agency business (uncertain of that point), and toward the end the male character agrees to retire (sell the company?) and begin a happy life with the female character.

It ends very sadly when the female discovers her colleague has died suddenly of natural causes. He has fixed himself a drink, taken a rest on a sofa, and I think we see the glass fall from his hand. She finds him shortly after. This tragic scene was very well staged and I was moved by the performances of these two actors.


This mystery is solved. A wonderful person on another forum has identified this.
It's from a 2009 UK Series called 'Monday Monday'. The scene in question takes place in episode 7, season one.
