The Mafia enter Suburbia
3 November 2013 | by (Walmington On Sea) – See all my reviews

On arriving home from work, Sid is told his cousin Tony from America is coming to stay, in desperate need for a room. Sid knows little about Tony, only that his Father, Uncle Fred, died in a gang related murder some years before. When it is discovered that Tony's mother is Italian, could it be that this desperate man has fled America for fear of being captured due to being part of the Mafia?

A very funny episode, very silly stuff. A typical 'Bless this House' episode, full of misunderstandings, full of characters digging bigger and bigger holes for themselves, full of stuff that simply wouldn't happen in real life. But it works because it is funny.

Prolific American actor David Bauer plays Tony, a character with a weak heart. In a sad bit of irony, Bauer would die of a heart-attack five months after this episode was broadcast.

It turns out that Tony's Father was a policeman who was killed by the Mafia and that Tony has followed in Fred's footsteps by being a police chief Inspector in New York. He simply needed a room at Sid's house because he quarrelled with his wife. A simple quick two minute chat would have sorted that out surely, but that was not the way of 1970's ITV sitcoms.
