Speed on the run!

10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A first-rate episode, slightly reminiscent of Steptoe & Son's 'The Desperate Hours'.

Speed is back in prison, and Wolfie busily painting slogans on walls such as 'Speed Is Innocent Again'. One night, while the rest of the T.P.F. is playing records at the Johnsons' house, Speed shows up, having broken out of the nick, and with the armed Mactaggart ( Iain Blair ) in tow. A hostage situation ensues. So as not to worry Florence, Charlie tells her Mactaggart is the insurance man...

The D.V.D. of this episode has been edited due to rights issues, notably Wolfie singing along to The Beatles' 'She Loves You'. Luckily it does not damage it too much. The newsreader is Corbet Woodall, also to be seen in many episodes of 'The Goodies'.

Funniest moment - when Mactaggart goes into the kitchen, Charlie gestures for Florence to go to the bedroom. She thinks he is after a roll in the hay! Second funniest moment - having dug a big hole on the green at Tooting Bec golf club, Tucker and Ken dash off with the box they have found, leaving Wolfie down there. Two golfers appear, and look surprised to say the least.
