Having enjoyed David Jason's magnificent comedic (and serious acting) talents in Only fools and horses, The darling bud's of May, Open all hours, A touch of Frost etc., it is sad too see him trying to rescue these messy scripts from total failure. The plots for all three episodes in this series have been sketchy and implausible. Having an all new cast in each episode means there are no regular characters to get to know (and like), and a lot of time is wasted introducing all these new characters in each episode. Des is supposed to be a master of disguise, but the failure of the make-up department is very obvious. They have a tough job David Jason will always look like David Jason, but they could have done much better. Overall, this series is shoddy workmanship. I feel sorry for him, he deserves MUCH better material than this. In some scenes, you can almost see him thinking "why did I agree to do this..." BBC, please do something commission some good scripts and lure sir David away from the low standards of ITV!
