Not On Your Todd!
21 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Appalled by the worsening standard of the food in the canteen, Blakey suggests Mrs.Butler apply for the job as cook. The new area manager, Mr.Simpson, is an old friend of hers, and Mum gets the job without any difficulty whatever. Soon talk is rife in the depot of impending marriage. With an ally at the top, Jack thinks he has Blakey over a barrel, and starts pushing him about...

Written by George Layton and Jonathan Lynn. Bob Todd of 'The Benny Hill Show' guest stars as 'Mr.Simpson'.

Funniest moment - Blakey telling 'Jack' to get out of his chair. The figure in the chair lowers his paper, and Blakey is horrified to see he has been talking to Mr.Simpson all along.
