Football and death are the main areas of humour in Idris Elba’s comedy.

Agnes (Madeline Appiah) discovers that their lonely neighbour Ernie has been dead for several days and she tries to figure out a way to give him a proper funeral. Meanwhile Valentine (Jimmy Akingbola) decides to sign up for a football trial with Leyton Orient, with coaching from Bagpipes (Bill Bailey) – only for the duo to be questioned by the police.

In the Long Run is on Sky One at 22.00.
