Series 1, Episode 1

A satirical take on modern life. Naturalistic sketches taking a sometimes dark look at the world of work, relationships, institutions and families. Highlights include a goose enrolling as a police officer - and somehow managing to make it through the very tight vetting procedures. There's a character sceptical about time, and a doll-baby so realistic she's more of a nightmare than a toy.
