Duration: 2 hours 46 minutes
Clare Barker is a social worker with all the politically correct jargon but none of the practical solutions, and her lack of self-awareness and general uselessness makes for hilarious listening. These six episodes find her struggling once again to control her professional and private life, as she goes house hunting with Brian, tries to survive Christmas Day with her family, and helps Megan organize her one-year-old daughter's birthday party. Packing up prior to moving into a new home with Brian, Clare makes a disturbing discovery; and there's trouble at work when she finds that her latest student social worker has an army background and encounters her nemesis Peggy at a conference. With a sparkling script, and starring Sally Phillips alongside Alex Lowe, Gemma Craven and Nina Conti, this hit radio sitcom is bound to appeal to all fans of 'the Rottweiler of the caring profession' (The Times).
