Series 1, Episode 1 - Yesterday's Jam

The unloved, ignored, socially-awkward Roy and Moss make up the I.T. department of Reynholm Industries. Their world is shattered by the arrival of Jen, a new 'relationship manager'.

Further details

Jen, a young woman who knows as much about computers as your average 17th-century farmer, joins socially-awkward Roy and Moss in the basement of Reynholm Industries.

Roy and Moss are annoyed by Jen's obvious lack of computer literacy, while Jen is equally gutted to be exiled to 'middle earth', a dingy basement where the I.T. department is located. However, it isn't long before Roy and Moss realise that a female presence in their team can have its benefits...


Episode double-bill to launch the new series.
