Episode Summary

EDIT
Hello Hans!
AIRED:
Rene and an airsick Edith land in England where British Intelligence tries to find out why they aren't the Airmen. An officer from Deep Intelligence is brought in, and he turns out to be none other than Hans Geering. In the intervening time, Hans has become a British citizen with his knowledge of the Nazi army (and a little bit of brainwashing). At #10 Downing Street, Churchill desires to meet Rene and Edith, who he awards medals and citations (after a few drinks and a nap). However, Edith decides to return home after discovering that Fanny and Leclerc are ruining the bar. They are flown over Nouvion, and as Rene hugs Edith goodbye, the bomb door opens and the two of them are dropped out of the plane. Arriving back at the cafe just before they are to be arrested for being out past curfew, Rene learns that he did not qualify for the collaboration medal after allmoreless

    A wonderful episode that sees the return of a favourite character and pokes fun at the English. Let's face it, the French and the Germans provided the ammunition for most of the jokes on this show. The English only had to suffer the disgrace of Crabtree's awful French. (Carstairs and Fairfax, the two pilots, were just endearingly eccentric.)



    With René and Edith in England we get a new clash of civilisations. So now English food, English beauties and British intelligence become the butts of jokes. The highlight, though, is the return of Hans Geering, complicating the multicultural plot. It's rare to see an actor enjoying his part as much as Sam Kelly does here. One thing confused me. Why did he meet René and Edith in Mr Rumbold's office? (I could have sworn I saw that set on Are You Being Served?".)



    Although "Allo Allo" was primarily a farce, it did once in while show a serious side. Perhaps not as often as "Dad's Army" or "It Ain't Half Hot, Mum", but there were little scenes that emphasised the real danger of war. In this episode the scene in the teahouse ends with an air raid that adds nothing to the plot. It does remind you that life was hard for the Brits as well...moreless
