Directed by Roger Bamford
First Broadcast in the UK: 24th October 1991
Seeing an opportunity in selling and fitting burglar alarms, Arthur employs the services of ex-burglar, turned herbal tea enthusiast Ron. As a result of Ron's handy work, Arthur ends up trapped at the lockup with a titanium aluminium roll-up door that doesn't work quite as it should. While Arthur is stuck at the lockup, Ray is unavailable and Ron decides that he has another use for Arthur's list of customers that need burglar alarms. With a jumped-up PC, Morley and an over-enthusiastic rottweiler on Arthur's case, this all spells trouble for Arthur & Ray.
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, Nicholas Day as DS Morley, Stephen Tompkinson as DC Park, Kenneth Colley as Ron, Simon Rouse as Inspector York, Alex Lowe as PC Corman, Gareth Marks as PC Howard, Tariq Alibai as Imran, John Atkinson as Vagrant, Joanna Bacon as Barmaid, Kim Teoh as Mr. Fong, Adrian McLoughlin as Cabbie, Joseph Hutton as Liam
Facts: Actor Simon Rouse is probably best known by British viewers as Jack Meadows from 'The Bill'. In this episode we see both a wicked side to Dave, as he waits at The Winchester Club for Arthur to call next along with all the regulars. We also see his kind side as he sends a Winchester regular around to a stranded Arthur at the lockup with some vodka and tonic to cheer him up.
Bloopers: Watch carefully at the end of this episode as Arthur gets out of the van, spot anything peculiar? Visit the forum for more information on this.
