Norman gets coated
2 April 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Robin is painting the bathroom ( a waste of his time as it turns out. According to the first episode of 'George & Mildred', everyone left soon after Chrissy got married ). He is sore because Chrissy has been dating brother Norman. During a double-date with Larry, Robin does some soul-searching and decides to finally pop the question. But is he too late?

The unbelievable romance between Chrissy and Norman moves into top gear here, including a nauseating sequence in which they wander around London to the accompaniment of Francis Lai's 'A Man And A Woman'. The dialogue is out of sync with the actors' mouths. Roper decides to clean his chimney, and showers the lovebirds with soot just as talk of marriage is in the air ( later, when Norman is having a bath, we see his feet are black, which makes no sense as he was wearing socks and shoes when the soot flooded the room ).

The girls Larry and Robin date are the lovely 'Deirdre' ( Frankie Jordan, later to appear in Roy Clarke's 'Rosie' ), and the not-so lovely 'Muriel' or 'Moo' to her friends, played by Cecily Hobbs, a.k.a. 'Quaint Irene' from Channel 4's delightful 'Mapp And Lucia'. Having poured out his heart to these girls, Robin plucks up the courage to finally propose to Chrissy...only to discover Norman has beaten him to it. It is a heartbreaking scene, and Richard O'Sullivan has never been better.

Funniest moment - Robin pouring paint over Norman's head as he takes a bath. Just what the fans hoped would happen.
