Return of the Driscoll Brothers

When Boycie fails to answer the door to the Driscoll Brothers, they return to their car. Only, they come back with two shot guns and proceed to demolish Boycie's front door with them.

The scene includes a classic line that was performed with perfection by John Challis. After the brothers have knocked his door down and wandered in, they find Boycie, Marlene and Tyler hiding in the corner. Danny Driscoll then says "Why didn't answer the door?", to which Boycie replies, "We didn't hear you".

This scene, featuring John Challis, Sue Holderness, Jack Doolan, Roy Marsden, Christopher Ryan, is from Episode 4.2.
