Lost in the fog
25 December 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

One of the best episodes of 'Buses' sees Stan and Jack given a new route that takes them into the country ( 2 hours there, 2 hours back ). Blakey has assigned it to them out of spite. To prove it is not difficult, he agrees to go with them. After picking up Arthur, Olive and Mum from a visit to Aunt Maud's, the bus is caught in thick fog, and becomes hopelessly lost. As Blakey sleeps, Jack flicks peanuts into his open mouth. Olive wants to answer a call of nature, so Mum gives her a thread of wool to take along like Theseus in the famous Greek legend about the Minotaur. She lets out a scream, having been pushed into stinging nettles by a cow...

Frankie Howerd once starred in a film called 'The Runaway Bus', which was based on a similar premise. I have not seen it, so cannot compare the two. 'Foggy Night' boasts some classic interaction between the regulars, with Michael Robbins' 'Arthur' coming off best. When he thinks his wife is lost, he is practically overjoyed.

Pete Brady, whose voice was heard on the radio, was a regular on Thames' hit 'Blue Peter' rival - 'Magpie'.

Funniest moment - Mum recounting how Olive used to suck her toes whilst laying stark naked on a hearth rug. Arthur is nauseated. "Do you mind? Not after rabbit stew!".

Second funniest moment - the passengers terrified as a cow tries to enter the bus!
