I LOVE Paris Dave and Billy win a trip to France, sadly the program makers clearly didn't get so lucky, so this episode takes place in an ITV budgeted Paris which consists of travelogue footage, British actors with OTT French accents and some location work at a grotty park which couldn't look less Parisian. Still there are some good laughs here due to the pair's pigeon French (particularly Billy's mispronunciation of Merci as "Murky") and since this is France, there's time for some French farce as well, when Dave accidentally ends up in the wrong hotel room and is then joined in bed by the female part of a honeymooning couple (played by Ann "Virgin Witch" Michelle) whose husband then walks in on them. There's also a rather bizarre period-dress "fantasy scene" which comes out of nowhere, and finds Dave about to be guillotined. All of which seems to exist purely to nick a gag from Carry on Don't Lose Your Head, as a messenger boy is told by Dave "put the letter in the basket, I'll read it later". Things come to a close at the Eiffel Tower, where Dave and Billy get locked in, with seemingly only the honeymooning couple being on hand to save them. What will happen next . well nothing as the episode abruptly ends there, was the punch line too rude to go out? or did the episode go over budget? Your guess is as good as mine.
