The Gang is looking forward to a nice evening out in London when a man steps off the pavement, and Duffy's van hits him. He is Michael Upjohn ( Adam Verney ), owner of a local dry cleaners. While he recuperates in hospital ( where he takes the opportunity to flirt with Maureen ), the Gang try to make amends by running his business. Dennis and Peter struggle to make sense of the dry cleaning equipment. Frankie meanwhile reads trashy detective stories to Upjohn's mother...

As the first series of 'The Fenn Street Gang' drew to a close, the stories ceased to focus on individual members, and instead featured them as a group. This one is pretty good, and features the late Daphne Heard - best remembered as 'Mrs.Poo' from 'To The Manor Born' - as the dry cleaner's outspoken mother. Surprisingly, the only Gang member she gets on really well with is Frankie. At the end, they are walk out of a cinema showing 'The Big Sleep', wearing 1940's clothing and addressing each other as 'Humphrey Bogart' and 'Lauren Bacall'. Instead of Denis King's theme, the end titles feature an orchestral version of 'As Time Goes By' from 'Casablanca'. Adam Verney appeared in three episodes of L.W.T.'s 'Doctor In The House'

Funniest moment - Dennis accidentally putting a plate in the washing machine.
