It is a bad night for the Freeman family when Ben is taken to casualty after yet another accident. Karen writes a letter to the Prime Minister asking him to sack her teacher at school. The evening gets worse when a thunder storm hits the area. The evening finishes off with a visit from the police.
Outnumbered is about a family living in South London, where the parents are "Outnumbered" by their three children. The parents constantly try to keep their children under control, but completely fail to do so. The father, Pete, works at an inner city school as a history teacher, whereas mother, Sue, is a part-time PA.
The three children are eleven-year-old Jake who worries about everything, from worrying about starting at his new school to the world being sucked into a black hole, seven-year-old Ben who constantly lies to his parents and always wants to watch Little Britain, and five-year-old Karen who constantly asks too many questions.
