Quite sad.
27 December 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

When Jonathan falls foul of toothache, Sheila has toi work with anaesthetist Quentin, who's displaying some very odd behaviour.

I find this one quite sad, maybe it's because mental health is treated very differently now to how it was back in 1991.

The humour is somewhat lacking here, it's pretty much all centred around the demise of Quentin.

An amusing scene at the end where Sheila has her hand in a Pickled onion jar.

The only one so far that's been below par. 5/10
