The final episode of Season One sees Joe and the gang taking off to the seaside resort of Ludno-On-Sea.
Joe's car breaks down en route, and poor Doreen has to push the rest of the way. Joe fancies a dip in the sea, only to find he has inadvertently strayed onto a nudist beach ( a then-topical reference to Brighton Council's recent decision to allow au naturelle sunbathers on its sand ). Much to Joe's chagrin, Doreen appears to be getting over-friendly with gormless Eric. At the boys' night out, Geyser finds himself lumbered with the man-hungry Vera ( Sheila Steafel ).
This was the last appearance of Debbie Linden's 'Doreen'. She would be replaced the following year by Janine Duvitski as plain-Jane 'Muriel'. That lovely character actor Gordon Rollings shows up as a hapless drunk.
Funniest moment - after Geyser gets up on stage to sing, Vera becomes so excited she chases him onto the beach. Geyser is forced to hide under a pile of litter near the pier to escape her amorous advances.
