The local animal shelter visits with dogs for the residents to stroke and Derek's favourite is little terrier Ivor so he is heart-broken to be told that Ivor is old and cancerous and has to be put down. Hannah is also under a lot of stress as Tom decides that he needs to go back to the Merchant Navy, which she sees as their splitting up. She can also do without Kev's attempts at erotic art and robot building which bring him into conflict with the loathsome Geoff. However Kev cheers everybody up when he makes a statue of Ivor out of bits of scrap metal. Written by don @ minifie-1

"Office" step aside, the adults are talking.
22 May 2014 | by kvandenbrink94See all my reviews

This episode put me through an emotional roller-coaster from beginning to end. In the short 20 minutes I went from happy to hysterical and back. Ricky Gervais I am convinced that you are a true artist and I hope to see many more episodes just like this one. This is such excellent television. Many can learn from your genius. This is by far your greatest work and I think you know that. I am so moved I can't even put it into words, every time I try I can't help but get teary. I am very interested in what more is in store for this masterpiece of a show of (hopefully) many more seasons to come. "Office" step aside, the adults are talking.
