Series 2 illustrates Brian trying to strengthen his relationship with Clare, as he attempts to propose... but when the opportunity arrives, the situation suddenly turns dire. Clare gets a chance to prove her professionalism as she is interviewed for Woman's Hour and Megan, now a professional social worker, is expecting her first child.
Series 3 is set a year later, with Megan handling life as a single mother and looking after her daughter Brenda. Now living in Simon's flat, Clare and Brian's relationship starts to break apart and Brian suggests couple counselling, but Clare is convinced they don't need any.
Clare returns for her final series. At the Sparrowhawk Family Centre, Clare's feeling the pressure - her clients are as awkward as ever, new student Cilla still needs her unique brand of mentoring, and Mrs Singh continues to be a thorn in her side. And back at home, there are problems and surprises in store. Can she finally crack work and family life, and get her rocky relationship with Brian back on track - or does fate have other ideas?
