Series 1, Episode 5 - The Big Lock-Out
A new security system ensures Manny is locked in and Bernard out. Fran is obsessed by the voice of an old friend.
After Black Books is burgled, Manny arranges the installation of a sophisticated security system. Distracted by a Subbuteo figure, he fails to memorise the code, condemning Bernard to a fun-packed night on the streets.
On the other side of the door, Manny must get by on the provisions inside and his well-honed survival tactics. Fran is no help to either as she becomes absorbed - and aroused - by old college pal Howell's voice. Shame she doesn't like the rest of him.
