Series 10, Episode 1 - The Experiment

On being forcibly up-ended by Seymour and Clegg to shake money from his pockets to buy a drink, Compo is left with a burning question; why, when he felt the blood rushing to his head upside down, did he not feel the blood rushing back to his feet when he was returned to a standing position?
