The Frog & The Pussycat
It's February 1961 and Joan is still keeping the Trotter fortunes afloat. She is holding down two jobs - one at the Ritz cinema and the other as Freddie Robdal's charlady. But she's been working for Freddie for six months and still doesn't know how to turn on his vacuum cleaner - their time is spent in far more romantic pursuits. Back at the Ritz, Joan is plagued by the less welcome attentions of her boss, Raynor. Every day she dreams of a new life with Freddie, but she knows she needs to see Del settled first.
Del is doing his best, continuing to get himself hitched to half of Peckham. He's particularly keen on the lovely Barbara - whose father has a thriving funeral business and a well-appointed home in Peckham posh-spot, King's Avenue. Things are going extremely well until Del gets trapped in the kitchen with Barbara's inebriated mum...
Meanwhile, DI Thomas is still desperate to get an arrest for the Margate jewellery heist and Freddie's fondness for Joan proves to be his undoing.
