Cast & crew
Rose turns up to work on time, Nitin insists the kitchen needs cleaning, and Al expresses the basic rule for school teachers.
Featuring: Jo Brand (Rose Denby), Alan Davies (Al Kavanagh) & Himesh Patel (Nitin).
Jo Brand and Morwenna Banks's public-sector sitcom continues, with the social workers' patience evaporating as inexorably as their department's budget. Rose's former husband continues to revolt, as do the staff kitchen in an altogether different way. Al visits some new parents and finds something worth fighting for, while Nat has some bad news that even her meticulously colour-coded Post-It arrangement can't quite quell.
