Episode 1 04x01
Walking disaster-area and child-trapped-in-a-man's-body Dan is blinkered by unrealistic hopes for his impending fatherhood; he's quit his much-hated job as a teacher and is applying his unique work ethic to another, more earthy profession. With Aunt Nesta and his mum now in a retirement village 'pissing my inheritance up a wall' Dan is on an increasingly desperate hunt to find a new home for his soon-to-be family. Helped by his oldest friends, uptight financial advisor Brian and the irrepressibly bonkers, serial 'entrepreneur' Jo, can Dan finally grow up to become the man he hopes he can be?
The Party 03x06
Dan's teaching career is reduced to few words in his final school assembly and some parting gestures from his child nemesis and Mr Klackoff. With Jo in sole charge of organising a Skype-ably impressive party at her shop, Dan can surely relax knowing that this is all in safe hands. But with the usually unflappable Nesta wrong-footed by sinister 'Daddy', Mum taking a turn for the worse, as well as the revelation of a mysterious terror-inducing local and seismic news from America... will Dan's world turn completely upside-down in this series finale?
Dan shares the shocking news of his adoption with his best mates and embarks on a search for a life that could have been. Brian's children are bored and a trip to the beach with Jo and Dan sounds far more exciting than their father's dull plans.

Cultural awakenings and jeopardy await.

With the increasing likelihood of Dan's American dream turning into a nightmare, Jo tries her best to help, while Brian is less concerned by his idiot friends, at best, questionable idea. Meanwhile, issues at home force Dan back into to the gym... although working out is the last thing he wants to do. Guest appearance by Reginald D Hunter.
Big News 03x03
In an action-packed episode involving the police, Dan is struggling to get his 'news' taken seriously, or even listened to by his friends and family.

Nesta also has a big problem to deal with, and 'Daddy' decides to take things up a gear with Dan.
