Series 8

And the Girls (Judy and Sandy) are a bit dejected. Sandy having got fed up with always coming second to Rugby, in Harrys affections, decided enough was and broke things off. Judith on the other hand has just rejected Alistair proposal of marriage, his reasons for wanting to marry her, being to have a port in the storm and stop him from ending up like his old university pal. Jean feeling for the girls, entreats Lionel to think of someway of raising the girls spirits, the next day brings Alistair to see Li about going to Japan to promote "my life in Kenya". While Alistair is there Lionel seeks advice on how to cheer up the girls, Jean arrives also, delighted that the men are trying to help the girls. But when Judy arrive back home early, Jean is terrified of being accused of meddling in her daughter affairs, and so quickly lies that Lionel has deeply person problem that he has to talk about to Alistair (to account for his presents in the house). Alistair helps by adding it's a guy thing.... and so starts a very farcical episode of as time goes by. I have to say that this is one of my favourite episodes, with so much confusion, infused with Jean ready lies and Lionel's bafflement at the centre, its not too be missed.

Other episodes include; when a supposedly stray dog follows Lionel home and Alistair begins to ask Sandy out rather than Judy. Lionel walks in on Sandy in the bath and causes Jean to look at building an extension in a wonderful honest episode that tackles a lost of confidence and facing growing old. Steve and Penny return from Holiday in Spain announcing there are going to move out there, and Lionel begins to worry about his money situation decides to sell the house in Hampshire only trouble being, is telling Lol and Mrs Bale .
