The smug Yorkshireman
24 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Our trio are bored. These are three old men trying to fill the days. A trip to the baths was unsuccessful. It was pulled down some years ago. The tea is horrible, the food in Sid's cafe is horrible and even the beer down the pub is horrible. Clegg exclaims the beer down south is better leading to strange looks from the locals.

Foggy exclaims that the Yorkshireman can be smug at times and the other two fear that he has upset the Yorkshire deity Earnshaw and unless he repents there will be catastrophe.

Certainly calamity for David Ryall, who makes a cameo as the man getting involved in slapstick with his car and his various injuries he has already got as he is already well plastered up by the local hospital.

Overall this is rather an aimless episode, it is just three men a little bored and feels more like a filler.
