Storyline

With bookings down on last season Maplin wants the staff to devise something that will be an attention-grabber. They come up with a reenactment of the execution of Marie Antoinette by guillotine. A nervous Peggy is persuaded to play the unfortunate queen but when she sees what the apparently safe guillotine does to a courgette in rehearsal, she faints and Ted cancels the stunt. Alec Foster is visiting and, seeing a chance to get back at Ted, fires him, replacing him with a new comedian Jimmy Jasper. The crowd hate him and when he starts to insult them Foster has no option but to sack him and bring back Ted. Written by don @ minifie-1
