Storyline

With Anita away on maternity leave, new girl Christine joins the team. While Dolly is very taken with her, Christine's backhanded compliments and paranormal beliefs, combined with her dreadful personal hygiene and flatulence problem, leave her very unpopular with the others, especially Stan. After a mixup involving Viagra and mugs of tea, Dolly turns against Christine, who flees the canteen in tears. Meanwhile, Bren stands up to a social worker over Petula's living arrangements, Norman develops a fear of bread, and Stan worries about his sexual prowess with Jean. Written by Anonymous

A newcomer causes problems.
25 April 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

With Anita taking maternity leave, a replacement is brought in, Christine, an outspoken, spiritual individual, who's not afraid to speak her mind.

Very clever, it has lots of laughs, and a rather serious side, the subject of Petula is raised.

One thing you see as you watch the whole series is how close they are as a team, how they're all so forgiving of one another, so it was obvious that a newcomer was going to cause mayhem, and naturally she does.

Kay Adshead is great as Christine, she's so funny, she plays the part with such sincerity.

Very funny, 8/10.
