    Episode 6
    The Good Guys have settled into their rooms at last and are now preparing for Operation Zorro, the reason they have come out here. However the Good Guys despite Beach's insistence that they are not on holiday seem to be spending too much time enjoying themselves. As always things do not go off without a hitch. First Beach ends up lying in the sun too long and severely burns himself, which makes him very grumpy as well as sore. The Operation is put on hold whilst his skin calms down a bit. Meanwhile Bones and Mark decide to try and join in with Spanish culture by indulging in a touch of naturism which results in their being arrested for indecent exposure. They are released on bail for the Operation, which finally takes place. However the promised dramatic Operation turns out to be a simple handover of an envelope. Hugo Blick is really worried about what his bosses at the BBC will say. Beach comes up with a solution, they will shoot a reconstruction, which he will write and direct and they will make it really dramatic. They do this and the result is a really OTT drama with guns and explosions. The BBC is NOT happy and neither is the Commissioner. He suspends them all indefinitely without paymoreless

    Operation Zorro has at last arrived. The Good Guys are making final preparations for the trip to Spain where the Operation will take place. Problems immediately arise when they find their luggage is over weight thanks to Beach's trunk, Strings' guitar and the Commissioner's golf clubs, which Mark Kemp (his nephew) is taking to his villa for him. There are further problems when Beach looks at Ray's nine-year-old passport and notices that the photo shows a younger Ray with more hair than he has now and insists Ray wears a wig to get through Passport control. At the airport later Mark leaves his uncle's clubs unattended and they get blown up. Ray and de Sade end up dropping Beach's trunk on his foot. In desperate need of some pain killers Beach ends up taking de Sade's special forces pain killers only to learn they are very powerful and have weird side effects. He turns over control to Ray just before he starts hallucinating. After a rather disturbed journey thanks to a manic Beach the Good Guys arrive in Spain and try to make contact with the MI6 agent using their secret password (the lyrics to Summer Holiday) which earns a few funny looks from tourists. Beach, who has been left in the sun to sweat out the toxins and is feeling better, makes contact with the Agent who turns out to be none other than their old dodgy accountant Roy Leyton who also owns the hotel they're staying in. Upon their arrival Leyton informs them that their rooms aren't available yet so they are forced to sleep on the sun lounges by the pool. Ray has meanwhile stuck lucky with a lady but unfortunately things go wrong when she finds out he's wearing a wig. This prompts Strings to write The Baldy Song. Convinced they have a hit on their hands Hugo Blick their producer decides to make a video choreographed by Mark.moreless

  • Forensics
    Episode 3
    The Good Guys begin the next stage of their training, forensics. They are sent to the scene of a sweet shop robbery to look for fingerprints and evidence. Beach and Ray however spend the whole investigation gorging themselves on the sweets and chocolates talking about things like the colour of aniseed balls and the best type of chocolate bar. The investigation is ruined when it turns out that Beach is not wearing gloves and all the prints they have found are his. Plus the robber was wearing gloves anyway. However they do find a blood and hair sample near a broken window. They decide to go to the hospital and knick anyone who has recently been admitted with a cut head. They end up bringing in some quite badly injured people for questioning and Beach is soon convinced they have the man. Not only has he a cut head but he also has a quarter of a pound of cola cubes on him. The lady from the shop however says it's not the right man though Beach is convinced still and believes the forensics will prove it. However this proves a lame duck when they mix up the samples at the lab. Beach decides the Good Guys need to sharpen up their minds so he takes them on a Sherlock Holmes weekend. Beach writes the script and plays Holmes with Ray naturally as Watson. However the weekend proves a disaster, as no one understands Beach's script and two hired actors refuse to come. Beach finishes as a gibbering wreck of tears whilst the others are still mystified by his script.moreless
