Storyline

Michelle brings a bottle of nitroglycerin to the café for safe keeping until it is time for her to use it to blow up a German train. However, as it is in a gin bottle, Edith thinks it really is gin and gives some to Madame Fanny. René and the two German officers meet the plane bringing their uniforms but on board there is only a Jewish tailor who takes their measurements. He does, however, take the painting of "The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies" back to London to be copied. Written by don @ minifie-1

A dangerous bottle of gin.
4 January 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A bottle of nitroglycerin is placed in Rene's hands for safe keeping by the Resistance. The race to get uniforms for The Colonel and Captain continues.

There was such originality in these early episodes, perfect fun for all the family. The script is great, and the performances are up to the mark.

The scene of Madame Fanny singing with Edith is hilarious, I love the look on the faces of the British Airmen.

Considering the subject matter, this truly was a brilliant show, a great episode with lots of gags. 8/10
