Dennis In The Dock!
23 November 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Left to his own devices one evening in the pub, Dennis falls in with a group of leather-jacketed hoodlums. After plying him with drink, they rob a chocolate machine. The police show up ( how efficient the boys in blue were back in 1971! ), and arrest them.

Poor Dennis goes up before the local Magistrate. But help comes from an unexpected source. Two of his former teachers, Mr.Price and Mr.Smith, are there, and Smithy's impassioned plea for clemency bores the beak so much he lets Dennis off with a small fine...

There was two-way traffic between 'Please Sir!''s last season and 'The Fenn Street Gang''s first, with characters cropping up in both shows. While the former was struggling to cope without 'Hedges' and '5C', the latter was coasting along nicely - mind you, most of its cast was from 'Please Sir!', so this was not surprising.

'Price' had previously worked his Celtic magic in 'Should Auld Acquaintance'. 'Smithy' alas was confined to this Tony Bilbow-scripted episode. Regrettably, 'Potter', 'Miss Ewell' and 'Cromwell' did not appear in the show.

Chocolates machines ( along with cigarette machines ) were a common sight on Britain's streets in the '60's and '70's. They were abolished because people kept on robbing them!

A good episode, although Peter Bayliss seems a bit wasted here.

David Janson, who plays one of the thugs, would go on to star in Esmonde and Larbey's 'Get Some In!'. The beak is Geoffrey Bayldon, who played 'Catweazle' in the hit children's show for L.W.T.

Funniest moment - Smithy's outraged face as the beak refers to him as a 'teddy boy'!
