Storyline

Neo-Nazism is on the rise in Germany following the fall of the Berlin wall and B'stard plans to profit by it by pretending that he wants to be the new Fuhrer. To this end he obtains Hitler's perfectly preserved member and persuades Colonel Wessell, a former Nazi, that he can supply the whole body for a price. Frau Kleist, the other MEP for Obersaxony, believes that B'stard's aspirations are genuine and plans to kill him with a bomb, though he manages to escape as it goes off, wiping out the Nazis. With the money obtained from Wessell he returns to England to find Sarah and Frau Kleist are now a Lesbian couple. Written by don @ minifie-1

They saved Hitler's...knob?
7 June 2011 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990 brought about a reunification of Germany which, predictably, led to a resurgence of Neo-Nazism. This episode opens with Alan watching a fascist riot on television. Sensing an opportunity to make money, he teams up with Nicki Ceaucescu ( Paul Bentall ), son of the late Romanian dictator - gatecrashes a Nazi meeting, denounces the Fourth Reich as 'fifth rate', and tries to take over. The ace up his sleeve is a flask containing Hitler's remains - no, not his brain. Its his knob!

As happened in Season 2's 'The Haltemprice Bunker', Alan tries to exploit Nazism for his own ends, only this time its not so funny. 'Frau Kleist' ( Brigitte Kahn ) returns, and with Sarah ( who is sexually attracted to her ) tries to kill Alan with a bomb. Neeedless to say, he instead uses it to wipe out the Nazis.

Things To Look Out For - the 'Marlene Dietrich' impersonator is none other than the now-famous Paul O'Grady, here credited as 'Paul Savage'.

Funniest moment - Herr Wessel ( Hans Meyer ) looks into the flask, and pronounces the organ to be genuine: "I recognise Goering's teeth-marks!".
