  • Louis and Briggs, along with a fellow officer, go undercover at Ronnie Goodall's gym after an illegal serum of drugs are used for his boxers, to try and catch him offering it to them. As usual, things don't quite go according to plan...moreless

    A well-written episode sees Louis, Briggs and fellow officer Danny Hendry go undercover at Ronnie Goodall’s gym, who has been suspected of offering a drug enhancing serum to his boxers – this is after Briggs and Louis injure Superintendent Cottam during a training exercise.



    While at the gym, Danny manages to get Ronnie to offer him some of the serum, catching him red-handed, but Briggs and Louis accidentally take too much of it, turning them into crazed fighting machines – which in a scene of great hilarity they take out all of the boxers at the gym, followed by Superintendent Cottam.



    Robert Powell and Jasper Carrott are in excellent form here – especially at the end of the episode, and I would definitely recommend this episode to fans of either men.



    A definite classic in my opinion...moreless
