All bets are off

I'll fly you for a quid was written by the legendary Dick Clements and Ian la Frenais and was the final in the series of one off comedies in the Ronnie Barker 7 of 1 strand.

In a gambling mad Welsh village, Grandpa Owen dies one afternoon, his son Evan realises he held a winning betting slip worth almost £850. He searches the house top and bottom with no success and reckons it can still be in hidden in his grandad's person but he might have to open the coffin much to the annoyance of the new priest already upset with the amount of gambling going on.

Its an interesting one off but I never took to it and even guessed the twist with the preacher. I could wager this would never fly as a series.
