Title Airdate Description Notes
The Second Stag Night of Doggy Wilkinson 15 July An old friend – Doggy – is getting re-married and invites Clegg, Truly, Alvin, Entwistle and Howard to his stag night at a local inn. At 82, for Doggy it’s more a ‘stag afternoon’ to celebrate his last day of freedom. Doggy is disappointed that this stag night is less fun than his last, and to make matters worse, he just can’t remember the name of his bride to be. When he gets into a singing mode, he falls from a table and has to be wheeled home in a handcart - but manages to kiss a policeman on the way. Pearl is suspicious of Howard’s whereabouts, and goes to the Inn where, unfortunately, Truly has arranged for Marina to be a Strip-o-gram girl for Doggy’s stag night.

What Happened to the Horse? 29 July Clegg, Truly and Alvin never miss an opportunity to mislead Howard, so when Alvin observes that a particular strip of woodland looks as if it could be haunted, they soon convince him of its authenticity. Howard accepts the story that nobody goes to the wood at a certain time because of weird sightings of a ghostly tinker, and immediately sees the opportunity to go there for an innocent nature walk with Marina. To scare Howard, Alvin dresses-up to look like the ghostly tinker, however, into the wood comes Barry who is dressed in a costume for a part he has in an amateur dramatic production. When Alvin and Barry see each other, they both think they have seen the real ghostly tinker and flee. The local police see the frenzied escape of the men in Entwistle’s truck and give pursuit. When Alvin – wide eyed and ghostly -looks out from the truck, the Police car skids off the road into a roadside sign.

Later the men happen upon Tom who is grieving over the death of a dear friend. After getting him drunk, they wheel him back on an abandoned supermarket trolley. Howard implores Clegg to dress-up as a motor cyclist and just be seen by Pearl with the bike. The ladies hear the noise of the bike and are just in time to see Clegg roar-off in pursuit of Tom in the supermarket trolley, which has silently rolled away.
