You Lose Some, You Win Some
4 October 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Professional gambler Maurice (Anthony Valentine) returns. He has roped in some ordinary punters to gamble on his behalf. They put up the stake, then split the winnings in half.

However Maurice is persona non grata in most casinos. The casino boss Parsons (Leslie Schofield) is not impressed and has got a keen eye on his motley crew.

Arthur offers Terry to mind Maurice's group as they face intimidation from the casino's security.

It upsets Terry's romantic plans as he was hoping to have some quality time with a flight attendant. Later Maurice's wife disappears believed to be abducted by Parsons men.

It is another episode where Arthur connives Terry to do some work for him with the promise of a lucrative payday only to be diddled later.

There is one issue, Terry has his hands full minding a group of gamblers and look for Maurice's wife. There is also a feminist group led by Sadie (Lynda Baron) who are not happy with men like Maurice and Arthur.

A decent episode, Maurice was a great character well played by Valentine. It has an early role for Lesley Joseph who plays Maurice's wife.
