In desperation to feed and clothe his four children, Dixie takes an illicit job as a night security guard at the docks. He soon discovers that one man alone on a ship at night can do nothing but turn a blind eye to a gang of pilferers. However, if the missing goods are noticed, what will he tell his boss whose small security company is struggling to survive? Meanwhile, the petty bureaucrats at the D.H.S.S. launch an undercover operation, and Dixie's wife Freda is too frightened to open the front door.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The character Thomas Ralph Dean is nick-named 'Dixie' after the famous Everton player 'William Ralph Dean'. 'Dixie Dean' played for Everton between 1925 and 1937.

        His record of scoring 60 goals in one league season remains to this day and is unlikely to ever be surpassed.

        This is a magnanimous tribute from writer Alan Bleasdale, who is in fact a passionate Liverpool fan.
