Generation Why Bother

Episode 3 of 6

A chance meeting leads Ed to believe he may be owed a small fortune by the HMRC. Stars Christopher Douglas. From 2016.

Ed Reardon leads us through the ups and downs of his University Week.

Escaping a 'Wealth Protection Day' being held at the university Ed, armed with a carrier bag, cushion and sleep mask, heads up to the Oval for a relaxing day at the cricket where he meets a surprisingly interesting accountant who informs him he may be owed money by the HMRC. His agent, Ping, has no intention of helping him pursue this though as she's far too busy flirting with the chap with a 'man-bun' in the office across the road.

Written by Andrew Nickolds and Christopher Douglas.
