A great way to learn everyday, casual English is to watch these sort of shows, as the language used is that spoken in real life: slangs, idioms, and informal expressions. If you find it difficult to recognise words, lower the speed of the video to 0.75x or 0.5x.
The Gasford police have to arrest an illegal immigrant. Inspector Fowler first makes sure his officers get an elaborate brainstorming about tolerance and non-discrimination, a particularly sensitive subject for ethnic minority Constables Gladstone (Trinidadian origin) and Habib (Pakistani), so the hypothetical example is a Martian. Meanwhile shamelessly bigoted CID Inspector Grim fails to get accepted into a real Masonic lodge and pledges an absurd secret society instead.
