Season 01, Episode 06

It’s Judgement Day at Elm Heath Children’s Services. Denise wants outstanding cases closed, or heads will roll. So Al urgently needs to house a large family of Syrian refugee children, but he also urgently needs to leave the office for a mini-break before his girlfriend dumps him. And Rose still is yet to broach the extremely delicate matter of the pupil-teacher relationship with Denise. And then they get the regular prank call about the abandoned baby. Apparently, this time it’s in the crisps aisle at Superbrands. There’s never a real abandoned baby, it’s always a prank baby. Always…

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.
