Storyline

Envious of the Binghams' new house which they bought with financial help from their parents, Dick, Paul and Duncan consider buying a property. Dick and Paul offer six thousand to Major Woodnutt for his house in Primrose Crescent, which he says he will honour as an officer and a gentleman. However, when Duncan innocently puts in a higher offer he accepts that instead and eventually sells to a couple who put in an even higher bid. The house is lost but revenge presents itself when the major arrives at the hospital in need of an operation. Written by don @ minifie-1

"My God, you're corrupt!"
7 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Jealous at Bingham's luxurious new home, the St. Swithins gang decide to pool their financial resources and buy a house. Dick and Paul clinch a £6,000 deal with the oily, teeth-chattering Major Woodnutt for a property in Primrose Crescent, but Duncan unknowingly puts in a larger bid and his friends find themselves gazumped.

Then the Major begins showing other prospective buyers round the house. Obviously his word as 'an officer and a gentleman' means little, but an unexpected opportunity for revenge comes their way...

Terrific episode, though its hard to see why the lads want the house so badly - its practically falling apart. The late Peter Bayliss was best known to viewers for his role in 'Please Sir!' and 'The Fenn Street Gang' in which he played drunken 'David Dunstable'. He'd also appeared in the 'Doctor In The House' episode 'Look Into My Eyes' as 'Dr.Towers'.

Funniest moment - a 'Billy Liar' type fantasy sequence depicting Duncan as a ruthless property tycoon.
