Clara looks for cleaning work for extra money. Ena tells Val about her son who died through lack of nourishment. Sandra agrees to store one hundred and forty four boxes of crackers at Gamma Garments' loft for Dennis not knowing that the loft is damp because of a faulty pipe. Emily is disappointed in Sandra because of her lax attitude. With Val at night school, Ken nips to the Rovers for a packet of cigarettes leaving Peter and Susan alone. A piece of coal falls from the fire at No.9 and starts to burn.


Regular castEdit

Guest castEdit


  • TV Times synopsis: In which Dennis tries to go crackers
  • Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 4,710,000 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

Ken Barlow (about Ena Sharples): "She's forever quoting the Bible and trying to give people the impression she's so good but she's more unchristian than a lot of heathens."
