"Is everybody anarchy?"
29 January 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Upton is summoned to the Dean's office. A photo in a newspaper shows him participating in a students' protest. It looks as though Upton faces expulsion from St. Swithins until Loftus points out that the picture was, in fact, taken in New York. Upton was at the Dean's tea party the day before, a fact the old duffer had forgotten.

The hospital is invaded by hippies protesting about declining education standards. Duncan and the gang take the rise out of them mercilessly.

Loftus tries to quell the protest but is himself arrested...

Topical episode from Garden & Oddie. Student protests were worldwide at the time, thanks to the Vietnam war. It is unfortunate though that the protesters here include a smattering of ethnic groups, making Duncan and co.'s mocking of them seem slightly racist. No Briddock, Evans and Collier either.

Funniest moment - despite their mockery of the earlier protest, Upton and the others stage one of their own to complain about Loftus' arrest!
