Storyline

Meek clerk Arthur Price is desperately in love with the sweet Ann, the boss's daughter but is too shy to ask her out. By chance he meets charming if pushy Charlie Prince who is homeless and, in return for Arthur letting him move his large trunk into his lodgings and become his room-mate, gives him sound advice on wooing Ann with the result that the couple get engaged. Charlie has now outlived his usefulness and the newly confident Arthur has no qualms about getting rid of his mentor as he and Ann prepare to go away together. Will he get away with it?

Even mild mannered men have a breaking point..
13 February 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Arthur Price is a quiet chap, lacking a little in charisma, a clerk, who's madly in love with the bosses daughter, the beautiful Ann. Arthur lacks in style, far from suave or debonair, living with his Landlady he takes in his posh friend Charlie Prince who's down on his luck, in the hope of piking up some of Charlie's style. Charlie begins taking liberties, skipping rent etc, pushing Arthur to his breaking point, who has now started dating Anne.

The 80's wasn't the most stylish era in all fairness, and this episode suffers a little because of that, it's a bit grey around the edges, a little colourless, that said it's a good story, Michael kitchen is really good, as is Jeremy Clyde.

The twist is OK, if a little unimaginative, but the good outweighs the bad, 6/10
