    The twelfth and final series of the hilarious BBC Radio 4 sitcom starring Sally Phillips as the social worker with a dedicated social conscience (unless it's inconvenient for her)

    ‘The best comedy on radio’ The Stage

    The Sony Award-winning comedy series returns for the last time, as we bid farewell to Clare and her ongoing struggle to control both her professional and private life. In today's Big Society there are plenty of challenges out there for an involved, caring social worker. Or even Clare.

    These six episodes see her once again indulging her control freakery as she interferes in other people's lives on both a professional and personal basis. At the Sparrowhawk Family Centre, Clare’s feeling the pressure – her clients are as awkward as ever, new student Cilla still needs her unique brand of mentoring, and Mrs Singh continues to be a thorn in her side. And back at home, there are problems and surprises in store. Can she finally crack work and family life, and get her rocky relationship with Brian back on track – or does fate have other ideas?

    After 15 years, 12 series and 74 episodes, it’s crunch time for Clare…

    Sally Phillips stars as Clare, with Alex Lowe as Brian, Nina Conti as Nali, Gbemisola Ikumelo as Cilla and Nina Wadia as Mrs Singh.
