  • It's the final episode of the series. The truth about Operation Pot Roast is revealed, as a recording of Detective Nicely (Louis Theroux) preparing to confront Police Chief Rittenberger (Michael McKean) is unearthed. There's a prison break. There's a casino heist. There's an armed stand off with the cops. There are ice cream sandwiches. Basically, there's a lot going on.


    A true(ish) crime podcast, which sees undercover cop Pat Springleaf (James Acaster) share police wire recordings from the biggest case of his career: working to infiltrate and bring to justice the notorious SW6 gang.


    Back in 2013, ex-conman-turned-undercover-cop Pat was in the middle of a career-defining undercover gig - but problems beset him on all sides: the gang are getting suspicious; his wife wants a divorce; the police are demanding results; and his ex partner in crime is blackmailing him. Not an ideal situation for someone with a burning need to please absolutely everybody. In 2023, meanwhile, Pat and his producer Adams play clips to studio guests as they unpack the criminal hijinks that launched the career of the man now reasonably widely-known as James Acaster.

  • Rosie Jones, the most notorious bully on the comedy circuit, joins Pat and Adams in the studio this week as events really start to come to a head. Sita tells Pat an uncomfortable truth, which is a devastating blow for someone with a pathological need to be liked. Clarke also drops a bombshell - the sort of bombshell with 'you're fired' written on the side. And worlds collide when Pat decides to leverage his position on the Only Joking team to spring Lawrence from the big house, culminating in a bad day for Hugh Dennis...

  • Joe Lycett is in the studio with Pat and Adams this week, and it gets quite messy quite quickly. With Janet newly installed as leader of the SW11 gang, the criminals pivot from drug dealing to phone scams and Donna discovers a hidden talent for the artform. Clarke unexpectedly turns up in a new role at the police station, leaving Nish feeling abandoned and alone in his fuggy hillock house. Meanwhile Lawrence is not taking his defeat in the Leader-Off well, and decides that revenge - like pizza - is a dish best served delivered to the doorstep.
