Duncan tells Dick how bored he is on the M.S. Begonia. No crumpet, in
other words. By sheer luck who should happen along a few minutes later
but the ravishing Polly Roberts ( Bridget Brice ). Their chat is
interrupted by Mr.MacArther ( Geoffrey Lumsden ), a passenger
complaining of stomach trouble. Duncan tells him to go and find
Stuart-Clark. Angered by his rudeness, Polly storms off. On learning
she is a reporter, Duncan tries to make amends, fearing she might give
the company a bad name in the press. His efforts are undermined by Dick
feeding dodgy squid that night to everyone at the Captain's table...
A classic example of a not-too good script being redeemed by an above-average cast. Bridget Brice later played 'Pippa' - the lady who liberated Ronnie Corbett's 'Timothy' from his awful mother in the final episode of 'Sorry'. Geoffrey Lumsden was known to 'Dad's Army' fans as that dreadful bore 'Captain Square'. On a sad note, this episode marked the final television appearance of Edward Malin - the incontinent 'Walter' from 'Nearest & Dearest' - who died in 1977.
Funniest moment - having offended Polly, a narked Duncan lets off steam by shouting at some seagulls. He then has to dive out of the way as they defecate on him!
