Storyline

Harold and Albert are offered lead by Welsh Hughie a dodgy sort of character who claims to have got it legitimately from a local church. Albert is suspicious but they decide to buy the lead anyway for 10 quid as it would fetch 50 quid on the market. When a policeman comes round searching for lead, the Steptoes decide to dump the lead in the river but little did they know the lead came from their own roof in the first place. Written by Anonymous

The Lead Man Cometh
30 January 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Leonard Rossiter would turn up later in the classic episode The Desperate Hours. Here he plays Welsh Hughie who is selling cheap lead that he claims he obtained it from the local church and everything is above board.

Harold claims it is no use looking at a gift horse in the mouth and is willing to deal with Welsh Hughie. Albert has his suspicions as the lead is going dead cheap.

When the local bobby drops by warning the Steptoes of stolen lead doing the rounds, they panic and quickly dump it into the river. When they return home they find that their house is flooded by heavy rain because the the roof is leaking as there is no lead.

As it tends to be the case in these types of situations, it is Harold who gets to be the gullible one and is too trusting of Welsh Hughie.
