Man Down

Series 4 - Episode 4



Dan is holding his newborn child as Emma’s parents freely poke fun at him. They’re particularly amused by the idea he’s a half-decent teacher. “You’ve never seen me teach!” he protests to Emma’s mother. To which she shoots back, “I’ve never seen a cat ice a cake but I’m pretty sure it would make a mess of it.”

So to prove her wrong – and once again prove himself worthy of the beautiful Emma – he resolves to make a success of the school trip he’s taking his remedial class on. We know how school-trip storylines turn out in sitcoms but this one at least has some surreal (and filthy) touches, plus Dan insisting angrily, “I could inspire the tits off a kid!”


Dan takes his Behavioural Unit on a historical school trip with desperate hopes of becoming a 'bright light' his troubled kids can follow. Jo goes undercover to avoid government detection and Brian has a mysterious secret passion.
