Heading Out

Series 1 - Episode 4



Steve Pemberton guests as a bizarre, equine-obsessed vet inspector who turns up at Sara’s very peculiar practice. The place is even more shambolic after Daniel deserts his post to play sex games in his suburban front room. So Sara’s simple-minded friend Justine (Nicola Walker) steps in to staff the reception desk, adopting a northern accent because she’s a fan of All Creatures Great and Small.

It’s a cheerful half-hour of amiable nonsense led by Sue Perkins. I know it hasn’t set the world on fire, but its heart is in the right place and the
gags are often clever.


Sara is forced to seek help from an unlikely source when she hears that a veterinary inspector is coming to visit the surgery, and is given the unconventional task of trying to sexually arouse a Russian woman's dog. Elsewhere, Daniel enjoys some quality time with the ladies. Comedy, guest starring Steve Pemberton (Benidorm) and Sue Perkins' comic partner Mel Giedroyc.
