Storyline

Chrissy and Norman's wedding day comes round,and Robin,against Jo's counsel,does not tell Chrissy he loves her. He has made a wonderful cake but,later,when drunk,destroys it,and has to come up with a second,less impressive substitute. George tries to keep the Ropers' invitations from Mildred because he wants to go to a darts match instead and Mildred is furious when she finds out. The knot is tied and Robin kisses the bride - very passionately,not that she seems to mind. The lads all but vandalize the car in which they think the happy couple are to drive off but it turns out to be Robin's father's. Written by don @ minifie-1

Robin recovers from his heartbreak at losing Chrissy and makes the cake for her and Norman's wedding. Unfortunately, when drunk, he and Larry demolish it. On the morning of the wedding, Robin is forced to improvise a new cake - by icing two jam sponges together. The Ropers are invited, but George is not keen to go as he has a darts match at the British Legion lined up. Mildred puts her foot down...

Some good continuity here; Robin's parents are played by Leslie Sands and Hilda Kriseman, while Chrissy's are played by Glynn Edwards and Daphne Oxenford, all of whom have appeared in these roles before.

I was at school when 'House' was first on and, when it was announced that the show would be ending, there was much speculation as to what would happen in the last episode. The general consensus seemed to be that Robin would marry Chrissy. As you can probably imagine, the ending that was televised was not well-received. That the free-spirited and usually intelligent Chrissy could prefer Norman to Robin beggared belief. It would have been akin to 'Margo Leadbetter' of 'The Good Life' eloping with Bill Maynard's 'Selwyn Froggitt'. Even allowing for the fact that Paula Wilcox was not likely to be in 'Robin's Nest', it was a contrived and disappointing end to a fine series. Poor Chrissy. Destined to spend the rest of her days ironing Norman's shirts for cricket-club lunches.

As another reviewer has already commented, Robin and Chrissy's final kiss told the viewer what they knew already - these two were made for each other.

Funniest moment - Robin and Larry covering what they think is Norman's car with balloons, tin cans and 'Just Married' signs, only to then discover it is not Norman's car!

The words 'The End' flashed up over a group photo of the cast as the end titles rolled. It wasn't quite the end; Robin and the Ropers had spin-off series lined up, but for Chrissy, Jo and Larry, sadly their time really was up.
