Bernice Summerfield, Season Ten, Story One. Anyone hoping for a continuation of the fresh, new broom approach of the previous three years was soon disappointed. Very soon in fact, as within one minute, in walks Adrian, the father of Benny's child, carrying a whole load of Braxiatel Collection-related, emotional baggage. In a few minutes more, we have Bev Tarrant back from the grave and a plot. "It's a bank job, pure and simple," says Bev and she's right. That's it:
a bank job.
Fair enough, all the employees at said bank sound like Benny's nemesis Braxiatel but it is still merely
a bank job.
There are some flashbacks (about a painting or something) but it's just
a bank job.
There are some really tasteless, unfunny jokes about Bev's assumed name and a truly dreadful comedy-clone scenario and it's still just
a bank job.
One has the feeling that the author reluctantly agreed to do comedy but just wanted to do
a bank job.
Harry Myers is splendid as the newly downbeat Adrian and there's a double plot twist at the end but all we've had is
a bank job, pure and simple... and as dull as ditchwater.
