  • Is it possible that Adrian may have hit a lucky streak at last?

    Adrian is slightly saddened when he learns of the death of the elderly Archie Tait but is positively stunned when Mr. Tait's solicitor tells him that he has been left the elderly gentleman's house in his will! This means that Adrian, Glenn and William now have a home of their own and can move out of Pauline's house. Things are going along swimmingly until Adrian learns that Glenn is behind in his school work and will require tutoring. He engages a teacher from Glenn's school, Eleanor Flood, who does tutoring in the evenings. She comes to assist Glenn one evening a week and the boy is definitely making progress but is there something just a teeny bit odd about Miss Flood ...?

    An excellent episode upon which to end the series and kudos in partticular to Helen Baxendale, Stephen Mangan and Alison Steadman for excellent performances in their specific roles.

    A series well worth watching!moreless
