Jo Brand and Morwenna Banks's beautifully bittersweet comedy of life at Elm Heath children's services department concludes with Denise intent on laying down the law. Cases must be closed and "there will be a head count" to make sure nobody skives off; bad news for Al, who needs to leave early for a mini-break in Paris.
