Sharon and Eric are on honeymoon in Majorca. Whilst they are swimming in the hotel pool, Sharon's bag ( containing money and passports ) is stolen. The manager ( Peter Birrel ) allows them to stay provided they earn their keep by working there as waiter and waitress. Quick-tempered Eric is not good at dealing with rowdy, drunken British tourists, while Sharon finds herself being sexually propositioned at every turn.
Sharon finds her bag in the wardrobe of British girls Natalie ( Sandra Bryant ) and Anona ( Melanie Jane ). How to get it back? Eric has to turn cat burglar...
I seem to recall a similar thing happening to Brian Bryant ( Michael Gambon ) in Esmonde and Larbey's later 'The Other One', only his passport was not stolen, but accidentally burnt thanks to Ralph's ( Richard Briers ) stupidity. Sandra Bryant was one of the bitchy beauty contest entrants in Season 2's 'Is That A Proposal Eric?'. Billy Hamon, one of the rowdy British tourists, played 'Des' ( that cretin with the guitar ) in the fourth season of 'Please Sir!'.
No idea where this was filmed, but I'm sure it was not Majorca.
Funniest moment - Billy and his pals make fun of Eric thinking him to be a foreign waiter. When he suddenly responds to their insults in full-blooded Cockney English, they almost wet themselves.
