What a brilliantly written episode.
28 March 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

When Bill wakes up to find she's in bed with the biker, and Rona has become a nun, it's quite clear that something is wrong.

If ever there was a snapshot of what like was like for the average family in 1992, this was it. Bill was unemployed, at a time where the Country was definitely still struggling, Challenge Anneka was watched by millions, even causing mayhem for Bill.

I wonder how many people associated with the scene where Bill had to go and sign on, funny though it was, that was a reality for many people.
