Locked Out!
24 September 2008 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Mrs.Hollingbery is convinced Alf wants to molest her, so she locks him in his bedroom while he sleeps. The next morning, he wakes and finds he cannot go to the toilet. In desperation, he climbs out of the window and tries to do it in the garden. Various passers-by keep him from answering the call of nature.

Mr.Johnson is concerned about Alf's state of mind and calls Rita in Liverpool. By the time she arrives he has gotten revenge on the landlady by trapping her in her upstairs flat.

When the milkman turns up with a wad of money ( Else had won it by backing a horse called 'Chauvinist Pig' ), Alf is elated. To celebrate he takes his daughter, Marigold, Arthur and his Irish cousin to the pub. But Rita has invited Mrs.Hollingbery along too...

A cracking episode of 'And In Health', even if Alf and Mrs.Hollingbery do behave more like Laurel & Hardy than Alf and Else ever did. Interesting to hear the shopkeeper ( Renu Setna ) address Marigold by his nickname, as until now only Alf had done so. The scene in the shop is wonderful, especially when Alf loses his rag on hearing the shopkeeper tell him Else owed money before she died.

The presence of Una Stubbs is somewhat superfluous. With Dandy Nichols gone, I suppose it was inevitable we would get more Rita ( is it me or is Una prettier here than in 'Till Death Us Do Part'? Must be that different hairstyle ).

Funniest moment - Alf in his garden in his underwear, about to have a tinkle, only to find a neighbour staring at him over the wall!
