Last Of The Summer Wine. Randolph (James Hunter). Copyright: BBC.

Randolph seems to lack any of the requirements of a potential suitor, and is limp and unattractive, especially after Hobbo drops him in the river. After a little rehearsal and some invaluable tips on how to give Stella 'the look', Randolph demonstrates that he has no chance whatsoever of impressing her. But there must be some way - for instance, who is Stella's favourite movie character?
