Series 8, Episode 1 - Have A Great Weekend

As we renew our acquaintance with Ed we find him in a somewhat lighter mood, enjoying normal weekend-ish type things, like having a bath, and whistling. He's also visiting the DIY store - because he can.

Further details

Ed's renewed acquaintance with 1960's hot young model, Fiona Templeton, could have much to do with this new outlook, particularly as they have a shared love of the free sachets to be found in the Sunday newspapers. As long as they don't mix up the shampoo sachet with the brown sauce sachet they should be fine.
