Series 2, Episode 3 - Among Our Souvenirs

Moving to a new flat, the Starlings find themselves on the wrong end of some rather noisy neighbours and a particularly raucous party.

Further details

Even when the chirpy Starlings fly the coop they do not leave all their problems behind.

After months of being dubbed noisy neighbours, George and Kate move to a new flat but the same headache stays with them. This time, however, they are on the receiving end.

A noisy party in the flat below given by an actor and his wife is warning of things to come. But it is a safe bet that the Starlings will work things out in their own haphazard way.


This episode no longer exists in the archives. It is missing, believed wiped.
