Up the pole
1 January 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

A festive episode enlivened by guest stars Warren Mitchell and June Whitfield. He plays a posh hapless polar explorer, Potts who wants to get away from his equally posh wife, Delphi.

When Potts encounter the boys who are going fishing, he unburdens his woes while getting drunk with them.

Delphi meanwhile hooks up with Marina who has hatched another plan to meet up with Howard by the fishing lake.

Some nice comedy from Tom who gets dragged by dogs on a makeshift sled that Auntie Wainwright managed to flog.

However it is Mitchell and Whitfield who are the standouts from a run of the mill installment.
