For those of us who have brought up children this is right on the mark.

A dysfunctional but ultimately loving family. Outnumbered is about the Brockman family of South London, whose two parents are "outnumbered" by their three somewhat unruly children.

The father, Pete, (Hugh Dennis) works at an inner city school as a history teacher, and the mother, Sue, (Claire Skinner) is a part-time PA.The three children are eleven-year-old Jake, whose life seems fraught with anxieties, from starting at his new school to the world being sucked into a black hole (anxieties which cause his father even greater ones),seven-year-old Ben who acts like he has ADHD and five-year-old Karen who asks too many questions. Other characters who regularly appear include Sue's new age 44-year-old sister, Angela Morisson, and their father Frank, referred to as "Grandad", who appears to be suffering from Alzheimers but is looked after by the family.
