A fantastic Christmas special following on from the brilliant third series of 'Please Sir'
It is the morning of Bernard's wedding, so to celebrate his last night of freedom, a lot of alcohol was drunk the night before, leading to Bernard and Price sleeping in the same bed and Potter sleeping in Bernard's bath. So Bernard needs to get organised. Penny rings him worried because her dress, which is being delivered to her by Maureen and Sharon hasn't turned up. Maureen and Sharon turn up at Bernard's house as Potter forgot to tell Cromwell to pick Maureen and Sharon up, so Potter drives the two girls to Penny's in Bernard's car. Sounded like a good idea, but now how are Bernard and Price going to get to the church which is ten miles away. Penny has arrived at the church and is nervous as Bernard isn't there. But then he and Price arrive via bikes, they have cycled there. Bernard and Penny get married and then everyone goes back to the hotel for an after-party. Bernard and Penny are staying in the hotel for there wedding night, but don't tell anybody, so as to get rid of them quick. They tell everyone they are going to Portugal and Penny has some fake tickets. But the time on these fake tickets is five o'clock, meaning that they have to pretend to go. The party in the hotel goes on all night, so they have to wait in the cold car and it is snowing. Everyone finally leaves, so they go in to there room, but the hotel room has been let out as the hotel manager thought they were going to Portugal. They have to sleep in the lounge. Penny is about to impress Bernard with her sexy nightie, when all the wedding crowd come in saying that they can't get home because of the snow. Quite a crowded night.
A top special. Susan Richards makes her second appearance as Madge Smith, having previously appeared in 'It's a St. Bernard's Life' This was a great special and it is crying out to be an extended episode. A good hour special of this would have been great, but sadly only lasts for twenty-five minutes and filmed in black and white due to the industrial action that was taking place at the time. This should definitely have been the last episode of 'Please Sir' it would have gone out on such a high with this classic episode. But sadly it was bought back for a fourth series, with 5C gone and John Alderton only lasting two episodes and giving us a cast we just couldn't take into our hearts, unlike 5C and Bernard Hedges. This was a great special, seeing 'Please Sir' for the last time before its decline.
Best Bit: Bernard and Price arriving at the church on bikes.
