Episode Summary

EDIT
Peacemaker
AIRED:
After a violent argument with his girlfriend in a hotel, a loutish Heavy Metal rock star, "Bograt", disappears, just as he and his group The Necros are about to make a comeback. Bograt's agent, Lenny Bright, employs Margaret to find him. Rocky was a great fan of The Necros and is overjoyed to see a video of Bograt in his former venue, "The Ratpit", and to learn that Margaret is looking him. Margaret and Rocky go to see Bograt's girlfriend, Nikki. Another investigator, Bert Ostler, arrives: he has been hired by the record company to find Bograt. Margaret and Ostler take an instant dislike to each other but reluctantly agree to work together. Rocky goes to see Nikki again and as she is trying to seduce him, Bograt bursts in and accuses Rocky of being her new lover! After a violent argument, he storms off. Rocky eventually tracks him down to scaffolding outside The Ratpit. He is threatening to throw himself off because he feels that his life is a mess, but Rocky manages to talk him down. The mystery of Bograt's name is solved: his father was Polish and Bograt's real name is Bogdan Ratachinsky. Ken is employed by Elaine Bache to find her ex-husband Derek who has defaulted on her maintenance payments. Ken tracks down Derek to a shooting club where he is a member. Ken and Harry pose as divorced husbands to gain Derek's confidence. Over a poker game with his mates, Derek confides that he is getting part of his salary (as the manager of a firm selling bathroom furniture) paid in cash to keep it out of his wife's clutches. Harry is staging an event at The Plaza Suite for engineers from Utrecht. He tries to learn Dutch and plays "Tulips From Amsterdam" as they arrive, to make them feel at home. Their leader is a beautiful but humourless woman called Greta van de Murge who is bewildered by Harry's attempts: "But Amsterdam is many kilometres from Utrecht" she retorts. Harry accidentally breaks Greta's bracelet. While he is getting it repaired at a jewellers, he sees Elaine Bache with a man whom he learns is a very rich jeweller. Evidently her claims to be starving to death are a pack of lies. Ken and Margaret have a big row because she wants him to act for Elaine whereas he wants to tell Derek about Elaine's lover. Being divorced himself, Harry can sympathise with Derek's plight. He phones Derek's firm, pretending to be Elaine's lover, and asks for a very expensive and tasteless bathroom to be fitted at the house (where Derek used to live as well). Consequently Derek realises that his wife is living with another man. He says that he will hire a private detective and get evidence of co-habitation so as to reduce the maintenance payments.moreless
