Season 01, Episode 05
Nitin is getting a haircut, because Nat’s fixed him up with a date and Nitin badly ‘wants some’. Meanwhile, PC Harris calls an Emergency Strategy Meeting at Children’s Services. Two teenage girls have gone missing: Syrian orphans brought up as atheists but who have recently started to wear hijabs. And they’ve left a long, rambling note for their worried foster parents. PC Harris reckons it’s an ISIS sleeper cell. While Harris deploys all his resources, Martin offers to pop to the shops so he can look for them.
Social workers Rose and Al work in a children’s services department, dealing every day with the all too familiar social issues that flood the media. Swimming against a tide of bureaucracy and pedantry, and contending with the absurdities and irrationalities of life in a county council office, the pair attempt to navigate their way through their equally trying professional and personal lives.
