    With all the missions they've completed in the past, you'd have thought that bringing up a baby would be kid's play for The Five. However, when they find themselves looking after Cousin Rupert and his wife's baby, they have to deal with all sorts of issues - from fear to tiredness and responsibility.

    They have no idea if what they're doing is right or why the baby is crying. They use Dr Google constantly and are frustrated by the responses that range from 'don't worry about it' to 'rush her to the A & E'. Soon, the Five are reduced to trembling wrecks and all of them are quietly seething. Could this be an adventure too far?
