Outnumbered follows the daily chaos of family life with two parents and three young children locked in an unequal contest (hence the title). Containing elements of improvisation, this comedy is an honest portrayal of the well meaning parental incompetence that happens in most homes, as Sue (Claire Skinner) and Pete (Hugh Dennis) attempt to raise their kids with the minimum of emotional damage for all concerned. Tonight, Pete is suffering from a terrible hangover, and it seems worse as he struggles against a rising tide of superstition, astrology and conspiracy theories that seem to be taking over the family. Meanwhile, Ben takes time off from re-enacting the crusades to show a couple of prospective buyers around the house.
