"Get your fingers out of the sandwiches!"
15 July 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Roger and Amanda are in church for the christening of their child. Who should turn up unexpectedly ( or not, if you've been following the series ) but Finn, his wife and their baby ( which he almost leaves in the back-seat of a departing taxi ). The Vicar had double-booked the christenings.

Instead of waiting quietly for the first to finish, Finn gets up Roger's nose by denouncing religion as a con, and then chanting 'Amen!' at inappropriate moments during the ceremony. Roger holds Finn's baby for a few moments and it does something on his hand.

En route back to the Scott home, Finn tries to show Roger's mother how to drive. He almost knocks down a pedestrian, and then injures Roger...

You get the impression that, whenever a vicar was needed in a '70's sitcom, the first number the casting director phoned was Richard Wilson's. His T.V. debut was as the 'Reverend Martin Hooper' in Leslie Crowther's 'My Good Woman'. He's in this too; sporting a look of exasperation as Michael Crawford's 'Finn' wreaks havoc in church. Why no-one throws him out on his ear is a mystery. The man is a living disaster movie.

Fans of 'Some Mothers Do Ave Em' will recognise the actor who plays Roger's father as Anthony Woodruff a.k.a. 'Dr.Smedley'.

Funniest moment - Finn opening a bottle of champagne and spraying the poor Vicar.
