Jake D'Arcy

The revival of this comedy continues with Jack and Victor dealing with booze-related problems. Not only has Boabby decided to quit The Clansman, to be replaced by a fearsome new barman, but grog prices are up and Craiglang's residents have turned to bootleg "hoochie-coochie", which is having unwanted side effects. A comedy that should, by rights, be past its sell-by date but still reliably delivers laughs, this episode is dedicated to the late Jake D'Arcy (Pete the Jakey).
