The flat-mates find that the rent money has gone missing and call the police. However,they are so anxious that the Ropers do not find out about the theft that,rather than explain to them what happened,they try to avoid them. Bad plan. George had picked up the rent and had the money all the time. Written by don @ minifie-1

A thief in their midst?
13 March 2010 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Robin and Chrissy return to the flat to find the front door open. They also find the £80 set aside for the rent money is missing. So who took it? The police call, but no important clues are found. While trying to solve the crime, the flat mates must first elude the Ropers before they can ask for the money...

An average episode. An angry viewer complained to 'The Sunday People' newspaper after spotting a poster in the flat depicting the police as pigs. 'The Mucky Duck' finally acquires a landlord, played by Michael Segal. Of course no money has been stolen. Roper took it while they were out.

Funniest moment - after the three friends have fled from Roper for the umpteenth time, Mildred suggests he change his after-shave.

Three days after this was first broadcast, Richard O'Sullivan was back on I.T.V. in the first of a new run of 'Doctor In Charge' ( the episode in question was 'The Merger' ) in which he was the sneaky 'Lawrence Marwood Bingham'. It was not the first time the actor played two roles simultaneously in two top-rated sitcoms - only the year before he had been both 'Bingham' and 'Howard' the accident-prone boyfriend of one of Patrick Cargill's daughters in 'Father Dear Father'. It felt strange seeing him as married man 'Bingham' again after playing single 'Robin'. He would soon leave St. Swithins to concentrate on chasing after Chrissy.
