The healthy outdoor life
12 September 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The episode starts with Clegg and Truly in the outdoor countryside. An increasing rare thing in the last years of the show. The actors could not get insured for outdoors filming and it is obvious the scenes are green screened. It also looks like Peter Sallis might be reading from cue cards. Itself not an easy thing for him to do as he was also losing his vision.

Howard thinks Marina is looking elsewhere and he also feels underappreciated at home. Howard wants to leave home and head for Albania. At the very least spend a night camping.

Hobo persuades Howard to make it look that he and Marina are departing as friends and make sure Pearl sees it. She will then know it is all over between those two. Saying goodbye with a friendly handshake is easier said than done.

Of course Hobo has problems of his own with the amorous attentions of Miss Davenport.

The best part of the episode is Toby is disappointed in Morton over the attention he has been paying to his wife in the previous episode. Toby goes round to the library and requests the most boring book for Morton to read.

A theme is developing that would take it to the final episode. A wedding is going to take place and Glenda wants to lose weight. She and Barry start jogging and go for healthy eating much to Barry's disgust.
