Like plenty before her, Clare Barker has entered a caring profession so that she can sort out other people's problems rather than deal with her own. A control freak, Clare likes nothing better than interfering in other people's lives on both a professional and personal basis.

04 Last Words Clare is relieved when her most detested client, Mrs Crossingham, dies. She attends the funeral, as it means an afternoon off work. Helen accompanies her - after all, she's seen Mrs Crossingham's file, so she feels like she knew her.
Brian is unsettled when Simon asks Megan out - he has a quiet word with Simon ensuring their first date is also their last.
05 It's CHRISTMAS and time for Sparrowhawk Family Centre office CHRISTMAS party. Brian is teaching Clare to drive. It is not a situation she is comfortable with, as it involves taking instruction, whereas, Brian is enjoying his role as instructor far too much. Will Clare ever get into third gear and will the office party ever divide the restaurant bill fairly!.
06 Stage Fright Brian writes a play to be performed by his A-level pupils - a barely disguised portrayal of his life with Clare, and his longing for Megan. Stung by Brian's accusations of unsupportiveness Clare decides to spring a surprise on Brian and organises a works outing to see the play.
