Further details

Two men in white robes sweeping the floor just need to double-check that severing all connections with family and selling all assets doesn't mean that they're part of some kind of cult.

The Second World War pilots question whether being forced to eat powdered egg is actually abuse. And, when a middle-aged raver is recognised by the DJ as Mr Wilkinson from work, he begins to regret popping those extra pills.

When a man is offered a lettuce upgrade on his laptop, it's too good an offer to refuse - until he spots the latest carrot upgrade. As undercover spies psych themselves up to burst out of the van and free hostages, they realise that their reasonable boss has diverted the van to Bowl-la-rama in Watford for some team motivation.

And, when Dennis Lincoln Park finds himself 60ft below the streets of London to uncover a perfectly preserved Roman mural, his discovery soon comes to an abrupt end.
