Following on from last year's pilot, Ricky Gervais writes, directs and stars in the first full series of his comedy drama about the life of a retirement-home worker and his friends and colleagues. A visit from the council sees Broadhill facing closure, so manager Hannah and the staff work together to raise the funds needed to keep it open, and an outburst from Derek's best friend Dougie helps put smiles back on the residents' faces. With Karl Pilkington, Kerry Godliman and David Earl.
