Episode Summary

EDIT
Day of the Yokel
AIRED:
Debbie thinks that Ken is getting very unfit so she takes him out jogging. A spirited elderly woman, Irene Maplethorpe, is being victimised by pranks at Moat Farm where she lives. A dead sheep is found in a water-trough; cattle get loose; the farmyard is flooded; she gets anonymous phone calls and finally a barn is "accidentally" demolished by a JCB. A consortium of unscrupulous property developers, Rathbone, Keen and Blackwater (RKB), has designs on the land where Moat Farm is situated. They are planning to build "luxury dwellings" there, even though they don't yet own the land. RKB put pressure on Irene's wimpish nephew, Philip Lainchbury, who runs a sawmill that is in financial difficulties, to get him to persuade Irene to move. RKB offer Harry the chance to invest in the consortium and take him shooting on the land next to Moat Farm. Irene demands that they leave her alone - and shoots out the tyres of Rathbone's car to emphasise her point. Irene suspects that her nephew is involved in the pranks. He owns the farm and wants to sell it, although Irene has a right to live there as long as she wants. In fact the culprit is Philip's wife, Dierdre who wants the money to pay for her expensive tastes in cars and clothes. When challenged by Ken and Harry, she admits this and promises to leave Irene alone in future. Harry spreads the word about RKB's tactics among his colleagues in the Chamber of Commerce and the Round Table. An investigative journalist is also planning to expose their tactics in a newspaper article.moreless
