Series 2, Episode 4

The men are disappointed when the annual Clatterford Roundheads v Cavaliers battle re-enactment is cancelled after Health and Safety concerns. It's the Guild to the rescue, though, who come up with an alternative safe plan to save the event; one that includes a giant Soduko and a speed knitting contest. The simmering rivalry between Spike and Marcus over Tash's affections ends in a beer-fuelled clash on the battle field.
