The Bottle Boys Diaries part two (Danger Women at Work)
27 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When the oldest of the milkmen is pensioned off, Stan replaces him with -shock, horror- a woman, which all the lads object to. Naturally the woman in question is a ferocious butch feminist in the Carry on Girls tradition, played by Pam St. Clement a.k.a. Pat Butcher, in a role she'd probably like to forget. "I wouldn't say she's ugly, and I wouldn't say she's pretty" says Dave "I'd say she's pretty ugly". They then hatch a complex scheme to get rid of her, which rather drastically involves Dave coming onto her and proposing marriage. Anyway to cut a long story short, she eventually leaves the job anyway, gets wise to Dave's scheme and the episode ends with Askwith getting a pint over his head. One tiny observation; despite the cartoon opening, the story lines don't often actually seem to have much to do with them being milkmen, or ahem "milk" the comic possibilities of the job that much. Instead most of the episodes, like a good many British soap operas, centre around the characters drinking at the local pub The Kings Arms, rather than doing any work, almost giving a comic double meaning to the "bottle boys" of the title.
