Episode 1.2 - A Rocky Start

Determined to settle down to a quiet, village life, Boycie's first job is to sack the farm manager and ingratiate himself with the locals. Marlene is scathing - the farm has no animals and no crops - so what do these people do all day? But, undeterred, Elgin talks Boycie into starting a proper farm and their first priority is to buy a bull from a bankrupt local farmer who is fond of a drink or two.
