Robbery with Violence
22 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Albert becomes a have a go hero when he is attacked by intruders to the junkyard. He is even given a police medal for bravery.

The reality is a lot different. Albert knocked over Harold's china cabinet while hoovering up. Scared to tell Harold about his broken porcelain he knocks himself unconscious tells a fantastic tale about being beaten up by five skinheads with stocking on their face and a Pakistani gentleman.

However Harold later discovers the truth and gets his own back but Albert is still in the money when the press come knocking.

This is a rediscovered episode and the picture quality wavers. There a nice droll performance from Dudley Foster as the detective.
