Series 1, Episode 2 - Ghost Town
Jack is hoping mum Pauline will forgive him for the whole 'not telling her about the wedding thing'. They are back in Hebburn to help Dot move out of her retirement village.
Jack's big news - a book deal and a big publishing advance - will help, surely? He can leave his job as a local paper journalist behind and calm his mum down in one fell swoop.
But Pauline is no pushover and Joe is getting it in the neck for their son's recklessness too. Jack has got a big gesture in mind that will smooth it all over. Meanwhile, Ramsey tries to woo Denise's heart with the power of booze.
