The sun-soaked dramedy reaches its last episode with holiday park owners Mal (Philip Glenister) and Jen (Lesley Sharp) giving the place a makeover. Will it be enough to revive their fortunes? With $50,000 to find to keep the park open, they need to track down the co-owner to help them. Cue a wild goose chase, some tinklingly tense music and a right old caper. The cast are great and do their best with the lightweight and gently watchable material that's on offer.
