Terry's dad is out of jail following a six month stretch for armed robbery ( actually, he'd tried to steal a handbag in a busy high street ). Terry boasts in a school essay that his dad intends beating up Mr.Price in revenge for him giving evidence at the trial. When Price hears of this, he is terrified.
But he need not be. Mr.Stringer wants to go straight, and has forgiven Mr.Price, much to Terry's disgust.
Back at Fenn Street School, Mr.Cromwell is having problems with an new intercom system. Price sends for an electrician. When he arrives, his surly manner convinces Potter he is really Mr.Stringer...
Tony Bilbow picks up a thread begun in 'False Alarms'. Barry is worried that he will lose face in front of his friends, but in a clever ending Price sustains a mild electrical shock whilst poking about in a fuse box. 5C thinks he has gotten his come-uppance. The late Jack Watson, who plays the electrician, appeared in numerous television shows and films, including the role of the sergeant-major in 'The Wild Geese'.
Funniest moment - Price's futile attempts to hide from the man he thinks is Stringer.
