Regular castEdit

Guest castEdit


  • TV Times synopsis: Plans are laid at Gamma while Jerry rules the roost
  • Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 4,550,000 homes (chart placing unknown - the BBC scheduled Steptoe and Son directly opposite this episode of Coronation Street resulting in a lower than usual figure).

Notable dialogueEdit

Ena Sharples: "Just because you speak with a lace curtain accent an' 'ave got a Degree, doesn't mean that you know it all, Ken Barlow!"
