"Then you won't mind paying for it!"
17 November 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Sharon is working at the 'Dolls House' boutique, managed by the camp Mr.Winters. Visiting her there, Duffy ( wearing decorator's overalls ) manages to get paint on an expensive dress.

To get her own back, Sharon agrees to go on a date with a good-looking rep, Tony Lawson. As Duffy and his mate Batch have various run-ins with the police ( mainly concerning illegal parking of their van), Sharon is being wined and dined by Lawson, and they go back to his place. Unbeknowest to her, hard-boiled private eye Frankie 'Hank' Abbott is keeping watch on the apartment block...

A young Christopher Timothy appears here as 'Lawson', the master of seduction. Mike Grady, who plays 'Batch' would go on to be 'Ken' in 'Citizen Smith' and more recently, 'Barry' in 'Last Of The Summer Wine'. Carmen Monroe, cast as 'Yvonne Parker', Sharon's work colleague, went on to be 'Vilma' in 'The Fosters'. She's a great actress, far too good for this thankless role.

No laugh-out-loud funny moments in this Geoff Rowley and Andy Baker penned episode, I'm afraid, but Frankie's ridiculous private eye act raises the odd smile.
