Five Bedrooms–Season 1, Episode 6 (Fifty Years)

Now that all of the main characters have narrated at least one episode, I wondered whether the writers would continue with a rotating narrator, and if so, who they would go with? Would they keep the same rotation and start all over again with Ainsley? The answer to my two questions was yes and no. Yes, the rotating narrator would continue, but no it would not be Ainsley, it would be Heather.

This episode focused on Heather’s feelings around turning 50. She starts her day waking up to the sound of Ben singing outside, believing that he is singing away his broken heart over her “breaking up” with him. She then gets a call from Col wishing her a happy birthday, only for her to quickly remind him her birthday is in fact the next day and that she would be spending the last day of her forties assessing Manju’s home suitability for her wheelchair and interviewing receptionists for the nursing home she works for. Heather then goes downstairs and finds herself bombarded with a birthday song and dance from Ainsley and Harry, and a birthday cake with 50 lit candles on it before going to work.
