Episode Summary

EDIT
Doing it Tough
AIRED:
Local farmer, Bob Crowley, is due to have his harvester repossessed. Nick and Maggie escort the repo agent, Mr. Miller, to the farm. When they arrive it's been stolen. There is lots of finger pointing. Later that day Miller and his mates beat up Crowley. Maggie has a word to Bob's daughter Grace. Turns out that Grace and her boyfriend had "hidden" the harvester so that her father could collect the insurance so he wouldn't lose the farm. Needless-to-say she is charged. Meanwhile local handyman, David Tufnel is found dead. Wayne learns the hard way that whoever signs the body over to the morgue has to assist with the autopsy. On the personal front, Roz is trying to establish a beauty parlour at the watch-keepers house. Wayne doesn't get around to asking Tom for permission and when women start ringing the station for facials Roz is found out. Tom spits the dummy and closes her down before she really starts.moreless

    This second episode concerns a struggling farmer and the pushy repossession agent who doesn't care whose lifes he ruins as long as he gets his money.

    The Mount Thomas officers must try and resolve the situation, going by the book but seeing that the right outcome is reached.



    As I said in my review of the first episode, 'A Woman's Place', it is the characters as much (maybe even more) than the plots themselves that make the series so watchable. This episode features Wayne having to go through assisting in his first autopsy (and eventually finding himself that Nick wasn't as strong stomached he claimed!).



    A sub-plot has Roz trying to set up a beauty parlor. Many of the early episodes dealt with her trying her hand at various jobs, most of which failed for one reason or another, and usually fell on the wrong side of Sergeant Croydon in the process.



    All-in-all, a reasonable episode.moreless
