The Waltz That Wasn't
18 April 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

George is asleep when the ringing of a telephone next door awakens him. It is Suzy's mother, reminding her daughter that today is ( or rather should be ) their 25th wedding anniversary. Suzy wonders if George has remembered. Of course he hasn't. He also regularly failed to remember it when they were married. Suzy was forced to play a record of 'The Anniversary Waltz' repeatedly until he got the message.

Desperate to rekindle the fires of their relationship, Suzy dresses to kill and prepares to throw a surprise dinner. But George has invited the lovely Linda ( Lyn Ashley ) round his place that evening...

A not-too good third episode. It does seem strange that a newly-divorced woman should get upset when her ex fails to remember their wedding anniversary. Suzy's mother has changed her tune concerning George; in the first episode, she was glad that her daughter was free of his clutches. Hannah Gordon, by the way, here wears her hair in a crown and looks positively gorgeous in a low-cut dress. No man in his right mind would want to divorce her.

Lyn Ashley, who plays 'Linda', was married to 'Monty Python' star Eric Idle when this was made.

Funniest moment - a telephone engineer calls on Suzy. Not having seen a van parked outside, George assumes he must be a gentleman friend. Putting his ear to the wall, George hears her say: "Its in the bedroom!", and, jumping to the wrong conclusion, exclaims: "She hasn't given him time to get his shoes off!".
