After sad news from a pupil's family, Dan - primarily motivated by impressing Miss Lipsey - volunteers to look after Dennis for a weekend.

The pupil is subjected to reliving the glory years of Jo, Brian and Dan's childhood via a bike trip; a game of knock down ginger; 'furry periscope', a game very much of their own devising; not to mention Aunt Nesta's straightforward approach for getting him to 'find his inner beast'.

But will Dennis have enough fun to wow Miss Lipsey with a retelling of Dan's big-hearted gesture?
