Storyline

Lorna and Robin are a young couple who come to stay and Ruth tells Rigsby they are newly-weds. He gives them presents but withdraws them when he finds out they are just living together. They explain that Lorna's stern father disapprove of Robin so - in the absence of Alan - Ruth and Philip ask the father round to discuss things. Due to a misunderstanding he is horrified to think that Rigsby might be his daughter's boyfriend and goes for him, switching his anger to Philip who comes in to rescue Rigsby. Rigsby explains that Philip would not want Lorna as he already has ten wives and the father is so grateful Lorna's beloved is neither Rigsby nor Philip that he accepts Robin.

Horse manure Miss Jones!!
29 October 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sweet young couple Lorna and Robin turn up to stay at Rigsby's. Miss Jones tells Rigsby they are newly weds on their honeymoon. Rigsby decides to intercede and give them a night to remember. He pinches Philip's bottle of Champagne, he digs out the cut glass and celebrates with the couple. Miss Jones digs out some special night attire for Lorna and Rigsby gives Robin the talk about the facts of life. Lorna lets out that they aren't married and Rigsby's tone changes immediately, unhappy with what's going on under his roof Lorna's father is contacted.

Leonard Rossiter's at the top of his game, his timing, facial expressions and plain physicality is just mesmerising, he is incredibly watchable, there is a magic about him. The lines he delivers are almost poetic, the speech about treating Lorna like a piece of Dresden is hilarious.

An appearance from the lovely Deborah Watling too, so sweet in Doctor Who, she's wonderfully sweet again here too.

Brilliance!! 9/10
