A realistic cookery programme shows how to bin your burnt dinner and order a take-away; two policewomen get a bit too musical; a prime minister comes up with the ultimate excuse to duck out of a boring dinner; and there's wall-to-wall cakes and cockney mums in a loving re-creation of Call the Midwife.
