Greg Davies’s creation is still having plenty of problems, worrying about how to bring up the ideal family. Meanwhile, while going through a childhood diary, he remembers his old teddy bear and decides to try and find it once again. There is also the issue about a terrible truth concerning a mis-remembered friendship, and the horrors of Dan possibly going back into teaching.
Elsewhere, Dan’s friend Jo (Roisin Conaty) decides to take up “freeganism”.
