Episode Summary

Stephen Fretwell
There's a war going on people. The very existence of London's black cabs is under threat from the inexorable rise of the machines - namely Peugeots six-seater people carrier machines. Machines that could soon start replacing the hackney carriage on the streets of London. Gerry Facenna, chairman of allied vehicles who make the Peugeots has recently said, rather ominously: "Things have got to move on, look at the red phone box". yeah Gerry we're looking, and what we see is a classic design of iconic red, domed roof and Grecian door replaced by a long streak of plastic called the kx100 plus. And Gerry, no doubt you'll cite the end of the Routemaster as progress. Progress? The Bendy Bus? Well why don't we go and stick a digital clock on Big Ben while we're about it? Come on Gezza, wake up mate. Leading the resistance is Ian Pickering, whose company makes the black cabs. His thoughts? "We don't want London cabs to be another amorphous, bland product." Amen to that Ian. Stephen Fretwell playing in the Peugeot six-seater sessions doesn't really have much of a ring to it does it. Instead, here he is in a black cab - hope you like it Gerry.moreless
