Jimmy McGovern's award-winning drama series concludes back in the cash-strapped McEvoy household, where Margie has moved in temporarily with her dad to take care of him following his stroke. Daughter Leanne, unable to cope on her own with baby Edward, has gone along too, leaving Eddie and David home alone. Because of his one-year driving ban, Eddie now works in control at Alpha Zero Cabs, alongside new girl Sandra. She's a real plain Jane, but has set her sights on kind-hearted Eddie. Noticing that he's hopeless at looking after himself, she starts making his lunches for him, asks him to her flat to fix a broken window pane and cooks him a meal. Eddie begs Margie to come home but she won't leave her dad. Meanwhile, Sandra lures Eddie round to her flat again and his "kind heart" gets him into deep water. Timothy Spall, Ruth Jones, Ger Ryan and Bob Hoskins star.
