This Episode S05 E02

Blue Watch gets a videotape in the mail informing them that their mascot ‘Bulstrode’ has been kidnapped. Instead of paying ransom they invade Borough Street Fire Station at night and Malcolm steals the dentures of their Station Officer while he is asleep. Later, Blue Watch is called to a car fire in a Residential Neighbourhood where a toddler is trapped. Blue Watch unfortunately arrives too late to save the child and Nick laments on the unsafe materials used in car manufacturing. POPs is auditioning for “Richard III”. After securing the male lead for himself, Sicknote casts a newcomer named Cynthia as his partner, leaving Jean fuming with jealousy. Colin learns that he may stay in the fire brigade despite his earlier bungles. A man accidentally sets the attic of his house on fire and Blue Watch is called to put it out. After the shift, Colin has a big party to celebrate his success, but his Mum is not pleased when she catches him and Zoe snogging in the Garden Shed.
