Series 8, Episode 2 - Grim Up North
Boabby is persuaded to have a lock-in at The Clansman to mark the passing of Craiglang's much respected undertaker, Old McLeary. As Jack, Victor and the regulars outdo each other with stories of the most famous person they've ever met, dead or alive, Eric trumps them all with his tale of a film star liaison.
However, the fun soon stops as news spreads that a creepy new undertaker, Iain Duncan Sheathing, has moved into Craiglang. Nobody quite knows what to make of him, especially Isa, who's heard the stories and doesn't hold back in spreading the fear he's the living embodiment of the Grim Reaper.
Initially full of bravado, Jack and Victor are quickly spooked when Sheathing turns up at The Clansman. Back in his flat, Jack decides to figure out who this mysterious new undertaker really is, but when Isa turns up at Victor's door in a complete panic - and then Sheathing appears unannounced - Jack and Victor have no option but to take matters into their own hands.
