Review by:
David Brown

Is it just me or have the same plots been running at the factory for 30 years? They have too many orders and everyone’s got to work overtime. They haven’t got enough orders and the factory might shut down. Someone steals from the petty cash and gets their P45. Snobby Sally gets ideas above her station and ends up humiliated…

Here we get another old storyline standby when Carla secures a large order in the face of huge adversity. But the twist – if you can call it such – is that the Underworld boss is actually grateful when Sally offers to help out in the office. Who’d have thought we’d live to see the day?

About this programme

Nick and David go round to Michael's bedsit and warn him not to turn up at Street Cars, while the factory workers are relieved to hear Carla announce that she's secured a large order. Audrey is shocked when Nick humiliates Leanne in front of her, and the Bistro's customers are forced to leave as the tension between the duo reaches boiling point. Steve convinces himself he's going to fail his exam, while Lloyd grows concerned when Andrea remains evasive about seeing him off on holiday.
