High noon for Eddie!
11 February 2010 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The first of a two-part story.

Bill, Barbie, Arthur and Jacko enjoy a drink at their local pub. The harmonious atmosphere won't last much longer - today is the day Eddie Booth gets back from holiday. Sure enough, back come the Booths, Eddie with a suitcase full of 'souvenirs' - pub ashtrays. Instead of helping Joan unpack, he goes to his local, and is horrified to find Bill in his favourite chair. After tricking him out of it, Bill invites his friend Clyde ( Charles Hyatt ) over to the table. Eddie registers his displeasure by pouring beer over his head.

Worse is to come for Maple Terrace's favourite bigot. The vicar of St.Josephs ( Dick Bentley ) is retiring in favour of a black cleric ( James Fuller ), and the local shop has been sold to a Pakistani ( Azad Ali ). When Bill takes his black friends to the pub, Eddie's temper explodes. He challenges them to a punch-up outside at noon the following day, the winners to have exclusive rights to the pub. Bill accepts...

The scene where Eddie and Joan return from holiday is based on the opening of the unscreened pilot. They have been to Rome, which he hated as it was 'full of foreigners'. The pub in this episode has not been seen in the show before, which makes it hard to see what all the fuss is about. Surely there are other pubs in Twickenham? Azad Ali was a regular in the second season of 'Not On Your Nellie'. Australian comic Dick Bentley was one of the cast of the radio classic 'Take It From Here', and also appeared in the 'Barry McKenzie' movies.

Funniest moment - Eddie pops into the shop to get a tin of corned beef. Spotting a Pakistani opening the till, he naturally assumes he is going to rob it. Grabbing his arm, he shouts "Got you!". In fact, the 'thief' is none other than the new owner!
