Storyline

Gordon closes the center for three days to put the staff through exasperating emergency simulations: the first fire drill has a 82% casualty rate, the next scenarios will be worse! Meanwhile he talks Carol out of betting £100 on the horse Tim's track tip suggested, so she puts her bag with the cash in his office. Unfortunately, Helen hides the smoldering cigarette Gavin -uneasy with her physical intimacy- gave her in the bag too. She's fuming when Gordon must go back on his promise to spend his lunch hour with her. While Gordon leads Councilor Dapping to where he wants an unnecessary larger fire-escape, the money in the bag catches fire, with terrible consequences. Written by KGF Vissers

Low Key Episode, But Very Amusing
17 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Helen wants to tell Gordon she is pregnant or have a lovely dinner in his office.

Gordon of course, blows it.

During a fire drill, which I believe Brittas had blocked off all the exits with make-believe fire, trapping everyone within (poor Colin was designated an early fatality, but he wants to help so much, he keeps getting resurrected. He is one of the funniest moments in this ep).

Gordon had written several complaints about a faulty fire escape ladder. When the councillor is visiting to determine if the ladder is safe or not, she uncovers a real fire, which was caused quite by accident, and then finds herself and several other persons on the faulty fire escape, where they end up plunging 80 feet when the ladder gives way.

This would be the first time Whitbury Newtown Leisure Centre would be set afire.

But it was hardly the last!
