Listen to a sample

What to expect

Nell Gunn, Snowball and Esther will be back, along with more characters from Britain’s biggest beauty factory, as they battle the twists and turns of war in Stratford.

Will Nell find lasting love? Will Snowball reveal what forced him onto the streets? And will Esther be able to tame the wild child she takes under her wing as part of her new bursary? As flowers and vegetables blossom in the Shoot’s new Dig for Victory allotment, can the inhabitants really bury their pasts?
