The fourth episode sees the writers again trying to stretch the format of these lockdown dramas.
The first story is Kat upset that her son Zac is not coming home, presumably he is a university student living away.
Kat finds out that Zac is actually living with his father and she tries to manipulate him to come home.
Effectively done and also all too real. My own daughter decided to stay at university digs for a while rather than return home once lockdown happened. Although we did not have to pretend that we were ill to coax her. She eventually got bored as the other students had left.
The second one was I thought rather preachy at first but thinking about it later, I thought was more effective.
Roxy is disabled, a social influencer and is told her care hours will be cut because of lockdown.
Roxy feels her contact Esther is just talking down at her and believes that the reduction in her package will not be temporary but will become permanent.
Strangely Esther does come across as supercilious, with no empathy and using phrases that everything has been carefully analysed by the local authority when even the government came across as blagging it during the emergency.
The third story features two actors who are known for performance art. A slightly eccentric tale of an elderly couple who seem to be talking to their grandchild on Zoom.
