Series 1, Episode 5 - Love Comes to Royston Vasey
It's the day of businessman Brian's wedding to Cheryl. Can Geoff, the best man, reign in his feelings of hatred for Cheryl long enough not to ruin the big day?
Sonny and Cher's funeral takes place at the Dentons, in full funeral regalia and Val playing mournful music on the cello. Benjamin, desperate to escape, calls Barbara. Unbeknown to him, Barbara is anxiously waiting for replies to a personal ad she's placed in the paper. They get their wires crossed, and Barbara thinks it's a date!
We visit Stump Hole Caverns, Royston Vasey's second finest cave showcase. It takes its name from a crippled prostitute. The tour guide's life is blighted by the tragic death of a child who drowned on one of his tours. It is on Mick's mind so much that the day Michael Burke and the 999 team came to film still haunts his dreams.
It is the middle of the night and Maurice is pounding down the door of Hilary's shop... he is hungry and needs some "special stuff". At first Hilary is reluctant to let him in, but takes pity on Maurice and takes him to the cold store. There, their associate Samuel is slumped next to the freezer, shouting "more, I want more."
