TV Times Listing A Well Fashioned Fit Up Episode Locations

 Work for Terry and Arthur is rather thin on the ground of late and when an old friend of Terry's asks him to mind his new Irish Boozer, Terry is only too willing to accept. Meanwhile, Arthur thinks he is in luck when two young villains Billy and Nigel offer him some cheap, but exclusive designer garments. Arthur approaches his fashion importer Ronald Shyvers in order to sell the gear on and expects Terry to mind some of Shyver's new designs. Unfortunately, Terry is unable to be in two places at once and Arthur agrees that while Terry is minding the boozer, he will take the role of minding the new designs. Arthur soon realises that there is more to Shyvers than meets the eye, when he finds out that Billy and Nigel are also working for him!
