The final episode in the current series sees Michael (Rory Kinnear) celebrating his birthday – or at least that he would like to do.

Everyone in the café has clubbed together to get him a surprise present: a trip to a safari park, which is not the sort of gift the unadventurous Michael likes, but he ends up on it. The trip ends up being a nightmarish battle for survival as Arthur (Steve Delaney) tries another of his money-making schemes and John the Watch (Andy Linden) tries to be more like a schoolboy.

There is no news on a fourth series yet, but it seems safe to say the Count will return.

Count Arthur Strong is on BBC one at 20.30.
