Episode Summary

EDIT
It Couldn't Happen Here
AIRED:
Firebrand Labour leader Michael Murray is swept into office on a tide of rhetoric. His first act is to "reform education", but it looks suspiciously like a personal vendetta against Mr. Weller, the headmaster who had once sent him, as a boy, to a special school for disturbed children. When Murray is summoned by the renowned political theorist, Mervyn Sloan, he is told that great things are expected of him. But Sloan also firmly insists that a general strike be called in Murray's city to challenge the Conservative Government. When one of Murray's council members, who has a weakness for the bottle, fails to ensure pickets are sent to one particular school, a disastrous conflict ensues between Murray and Jim Nelson, who is unfortunately headmaster of a school for special needs children.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The credits to this series are amongst the most error-ridden in television history, especially as regards the cast. It appears that there may have been last-minute cuts to some episodes (particularly episode 4), made after the credits had already been finalised, resulting in some credited actors not actually appearing in the episode in question. This problem was compouded when the original seven-part series was recompiled to ten one-hour episodes for syndicated distribution, with partly remade credits that introduce new errors even while correcting others. Every effort has been made to rectify these problems.

    • NOTES (4)

      • Only Lindsay and Palin get star billing on the first episode. Julie Walters, billed in the opening credits for episodes 2 - 7, is not so credited here, although she does appear in the end credits.

      • Tamana Bleasdale, one of the Floor Runners for this series, is the daughter of the writer and producer, Alan Bleasdale, and had previously appeared as a child actress in her father's earlier TV series, Boys from the Blackstuff.

      • In the cast list for this episode (as well as episodes 4, 6 and 7), the name of the actress playing Monica (Michael Murray's PA) contains a letter unrepresentable in the standard character set: the R (not the E!) in Ayesa Toure's surname has an acute accent. This may be another mistake (see the note under "Goofs and Nitpicks", below), but it is a consistent one in all of the episodes in which she appears.
