Roy wears a T-shirt with "42" on it, given the nature of the show this is most likely a nod to Douglas Adams Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy. See more »

Cracking way to end series 1, hilarious!
20 November 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Denholm is a happy boss Project Icarus has been profitable. A thank you party is held, but the IT crowd are forgotten. Jen is suffering with PMT and so are the boys, they fail to grasp the situation, the phrase being 'Aunt Irma is visiting.' Moss is having to attend therapy after telling everyone previously that Jen had died, he fancies therapist Doctor Mendall. A silly email from Moss regarding Aunt Irma starts a riot. A crazy night out sees Jen end up with Moss, and Roy end up with Doctor Mendall.

Some utterly hilarious lines, 'I've fallen to the communists,' 'I am closed for maintenance,' 'I am closed for business.'

Having the wonderfully glamorous Frances Barber was a great move, foxy and funny, she's a legend! Chris O'Dowd is at his wonderful perfect best in this one!

Brilliant brilliant episode! 9/10
