Full synopsis

Not Going Out. Image shows from L to R: Neighbour (Andy Linden), Lee (Lee Mack). Copyright: Avalon Television / Arlo Productions.

Lucy begs Lee and Tim to get her new neighbour to stop making so much noise, but neither is man enough.

Tim takes the tag of 'wimp' to heart and rushes off to join a boxing gym while Lee, in an attempt to impress Lucy, makes the mistake of confronting the man in his own flat, where he finds a creepy psychopath with the eyes of a cold killer.
