Mr Finchley Takes The Road, Episode 2

Mr Finchley runs into an ancient mariner who has many tales to tell of his life at sea, each one taller than the last. Also, the barber, Horace Blain, has won the Irish Sweepstake but his new-found wealth has separated him from the one great love of his life, cutting hair. Meanwhile, following hot on Mr Finchley's tail is Oliver Watt-Anselm, the worst private eye in the world.
