    Finally, Alistair realized he actually needed Judy in his life and has asked her to marry him and she has agreed since he's actually changed since his money troubles. It was great to see that Alistair actually has an ability to be afraid of something because he never really showed much emotion during the entire series. The fact that he fainted in the pub and then went to the psychiatrist to find out what's wrong was hysterical. He's got panic attacks and is now crying constantly if he sees anything remotely cute or sad because of the medication and his trying to hide was was funny.

    Jean trying to get Sandy and Harry back together is wearing a little thin, but it shows just how much she thinks of Sandy as one of her own, and doesn't want her to have to stay with them alone with Judy and Alistair getting married.

    However, the most poposterous plot was the fact that Steven is getting an OBE for excellency in Denistry. I kind of find that difficult to believe but I guess the show wanted a way to get Stephen and Penny into another episode. However, I think they could have found another way to get them in it.

    Of course, it was mentioned that Madge couldn't attend the wedding because she was doing archelogical dig but in fact, Joan Sims had died since the last series and I guess they didn't want to depress everyone during the final season of the show.

    FINAL GRADE: Bmoreless
