"I Was Wellington's Boot!"
17 November 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Arriving at 'The Dolls' House' boutique, Duffy is horrified to see the supposedly gay Mr.Winters flirting with Sharon, as well as chasing her round the shop. Winters is only joking, but Eric feels genuinely insulted.

Over a burger and chips at a café, they have a row, and he storms off. Sharon then gets friendly with a poor student named Chris, who has used the row as cover to steal chips from Sharon's plate.

Chris takes Sharon to a museum and then to a stately home. They hit it off rather well. Chris is the complete opposite of Duffy, being intelligent and articulate. During walks in the park, he reads poetry to her.

But Sharon makes a horrifying discovery: as part of his laboratory experiments Chris uses live rabbits. End of relationship.

After a shaky first episode, 'Gang' was really hitting its stride with some well-crafted story lines, including this one by Tony Bilbow. Its Sharon's show, with some nice if irrelevant contributions from Frankie and Craven. Sharon's date with Chris boasts some splendid location filming, although the choice of music is a bit unimaginative.

Sharon's good-time girl of a mother is back, this time played by Barbara Keogh ( Diana Coupland was the original 'Connie Eversleigh' ). The character last appeared in the 'Please Sir!' episode 'The Decent Thing'. Andria Lawrence is 'Sandra' ( Sharon's new work colleague ). Blonde, busty Ms.Lawrence seems to have been in every sitcom ever made in the '70's, most notably 'Doctor At Large' and 'Doctor In Charge' as the man-mad 'Nurse Willett'. No mention is made of the fate of her predecessor, Yvonne Parker ( Carmen Munroe ).

Funniest moment - Frankie disguised as an old bearded man, a ruse so transparent I could see right to the back of my television screen!
