Episode menu

Series 2, Episode 6 - Quitters

In a bid to increase productivity, Sharon forces the smokers to attend an anti-smoking seminar.

Further details

An anti-smoking seminar has been organised in the smoking room and all the smokers have been ordered to attend - not because Sharon fears for their health, but because too much time is being wasted on breaks.

The general atmosphere isn't helped when Derek, the unfortunate man charged with running the session, manages to alienate most of the smokers in turn with his overly jolly and patronising manner.

In the end even Sharon is moved to join forces with her staff to put an end to matters before they get out of hand.
