Dennis Patterson has to give a talk to 70 bricklayers, outlining to them the dangers of the AIDS virus. He attends a course, and afterwards goes to the local pub, to watch the course leader give a TV interview. Unfortunately, he finds a more than cynical Oz at the bar. Naturally Oz displays a bigotted attitude towards the whole thing, but Dennis decides that if he is to convince 70 brickies of the danger, he must make Oz aware also. After much fruitless debate, Dennis cannot get through. Perhaps a joint effort with the good Doctor himself can rid Oz of his ignorance. Written by

This was the only television appearance of Auf Wiedersehen Pet characters between 1986 and 2002. A third season of AFP was originally planned soon after the second series completed, to be set in Moscow, seeing the lads rebuilding the British Embassy, but it was declared too expensive, and the other actors did not want to carry on without Gary Holton
who had died during filming, so the third series did not go ahead until it was picked up by the BBC some 15 years later. See more
