Further details

Christine takes extreme measures to find out who the father of Sophie's baby is.

Sophie's not prepared to reveal who the daddy is but granny-to-be Christine is determined to find out - so she locks Sophie in the garden hut.
Cathy's been having counselling to work through her own issues, so thinks she's ideally suited to counsel others, whether they want it or not.

Colin finds an old dart board in Eric's garage and challenges his neighbour to a friendly game. However, his competitive streak sees him resort to cheating when it looks as though Eric might win.

And when Sophie and Christine are finally persuaded to sit down and talk things through, the women are stunned by racy revelations about her love life.

Beth, as always, tries to keep the peace, but ends up caught right in the middle of it all.

Scrambled Eggs

Eric goes round to Cathy and Colin's to ask for help with moving a bed.

Featuring: Doon Mackichan (Cathy), Alex Norton (Eric) & Jonathan Watson (Colin).


The sitcom about Scottish suburbia continues. The plot (Eric moves a bed into the garage; Sophie won't name her baby's father) is undistinguished, but makes for some strong character comedy. Colin and Cathy are a strangely believable couple, with all the idiosyncratic loyalty that that implies. When Eric sees the funny side of Cath's therapy, Colin does not - though he's not serious for long. "Women are easily distracted," he explains to Eric. "Is that a dartboard?"

John Robinson, The Guardian, 29th April 2016
