'The Business Proposition': In the first episode of the series (and after the sad death of Arthur Lowe), Bert Hodges, former ARP warden, is looking for a partner to renovate the pier. Maybe he can get Frank Pike to talk to his ‘uncle’ Arthur....
'The Bank Loan': How can Hodges and Pike persuade Wilson to loan them the money?
