Episode Summary

EDIT
A Ride on the Wild Side
AIRED:
Ken makes a delivery to a house which is being used as a studio for the making of pornographic films. When Barry Drinkwater, the film director, hears about Ken's association with The Coaching Inn, he decides he wants to make a film there. Despite Ken's warnings, Harry persists in believing that it will be good publicity for the hotel! Debbie's younger sister, Lindy, arrives unannounced from Liverpool - she has run away from home. Debbie tries to persuade her to go back home, but Lindy complains that there's nothing to go back for and that she is fed up of being treated as a child. Harry gives her a part-time job working behind the hotel bar, but Drinkwater entices her away to give her a part in one of his films. Ken and Debbie can guess exactly what this will involve Lindy doing! They track her down and take her away from the flat over a sex-shop where Drinkwater has taken her. But when Ken leaves the sex-shop, laden with "complementary goods" that Beryl, the assistant, has given him, he is arrested by Detective Sergeant Margaret Daly of the Vice Squad who has been trying in vain to gather evidence that will send Drinkwater to prison. While on duty, Margaret comes across as a very severe, patronising woman, but when she realises that Ken is innocent she softens. Ken asks her out and they end up back at her house, where he is rather stunned to discover that she has a teenage daughter, a precocious red-head called Jo with a cut-glass voice and a habit of disdainfully tossing her head. Margaret decides to entrap the Drinkwater. Jo, dressed to kill, goes to his night club and before long he is chatting her up. Ken has planted a tape recorder nearby and Margaret is taking photographs as Drinkwater starts to seduce Jo. Having gained her evidence (although by rather underhand means!), Margaret arrests him for "importuning a minor". The combined efforts of Ken, Margaret, Jo and Debbie persuade Lindy to return to Liverpool.moreless
