Gran takes the Brockman family for a day out to London. But when Ben sees Trafalgar Square, it turns out he has a singular vision of what happened at the Battle of Trafalgar.

Also on the trip, Karen is unimpressed with modern art, Jake suffers serious trauma when he is unable to text on his mobile, and one of the family uses a visit to HMS Belfast for a brief re-enactment of World War Two.
