Further details

There are high hopes of a fine feast at Eric and Beth's house. The only trouble is, Beth forgot that Jaz was a vegetarian when she invited him and Ian round with Cathy and Colin for a slap-up roast lamb Sunday lunch.

Ian is sent out to pick up a meat-free option and bumps into Christine, who promptly invites herself and daughter Sophie round too.

Tensions rise around the dinner table, with Cathy furious that Colin has been caught at a lap-dancing club and Jaz, stressed about his return to work, locks himself in the toilet.

It all gets too much for host Beth when Cathy decides to forgive Colin and treat him to her own kind of special dance.

Press

Sunday lunch. A time to relax, loosen your belt and dispel concerns about anything more weighty than achieving optimal gravy distribution. Sadly, that doesn't quite apply at the Bairds' home. Beth and Eric abandon all hope of a soothing Sabbath when a simmering tiff between Cathy and Colin burbles into outright hostility. Not only that, but Christine won't let the lack of an invite stop her from joining the lunch table for lamb and all the trimmings. Plus chips.

Mark Gibbings-Jones, The Guardian, 5th December 2016
