Episode menu

Series 1, Episode 3 - The Boyfriend

Craig is still pestering Moz and everyone is talking about the local 'hand-job' murders. Nicki comes home after hearing about Moz's night out clubbing.

Further details

Colin is still on probation but that doesn't stop him calling around to score from Moz. He tells Moz that there was a body found opposite his bedsit, a man who had had his hand cut off.

The strangest people come to score from Moz: Leo, the window cleaner (through the window); then Craig, who climbs up the window cleaner's ladder; and finally a delivery woman who complains about the quality of Moz's weed!

Nicki comes home and gives Moz a hard time about seeing China the night before but Moz convinces her that nothing happened. One thing is about to lead to another when there is a series of phone calls and knocks on the door!

China is now going out with Cartoon Head but Nicki is still jealous of her and tries to slip some rat poison into her coffee. It doesn't quite have the desired effect! Meanwhile Cartoon Head leaves something unusual in Moz's bin.
