Stan starts at the bakery as a nightwatchman. Willie Piggott asks Emily to tell him how much Len's tender is for the student hostel job. When she refuses he threatens to refuse to renew the studio lease and evict Ena. Ray asks Emily to go over the tender figures for them but she refuses. Emily overhears Ena saying how much she enjoys living at the studio. Sandra accuses Audrey of being jealous of her and Ray. Hilda tries to turn day into night for Stan, yelling at the coalmen to keep quiet and arguing with Annie in the street about failing to turn up at work, both times waking Stan up herself. He goes to yard to sleep instead. Ernie tells Emily how much he's looking forward to the expansion of his business. Elsie buys a load of hairspray off a salesman because she feels sorry for him; he reminds her of Dennis. Audrey tells Sandra that Ray is only with her because he's in a wheelchair. Emily agrees to spy for Piggott.


Regular castEdit

Guest castEdit



  • Bernard Youens was credited as Stan Ogden in this episode and the previous one in TV Times but appears in neither. It is possible that the actor was ill and a hasty rewrite amended his intended scenes as the character is spoken of frequently throughout the episode.
  • TV Times synopsis: Stan demands peace and quiet
  • Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 8,350,000 homes (2nd place).
