Storyline

The landlord, who is unaware of Mr. Alcock's death, wants the Alcock Companies to vacate the premises so that he can sell the building. The lease has three more years to run, so Marigold doesn't want to accommodate him. Unfortunately, the lease was in her late husband's name and didn't transfer to her upon his death. She convinces dim-witted Ernest to pretend to be her husband. Meanwhile, Richard Gander decides that he needs life insurance.

The stand in.
8 October 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Marigold inherited her husband's batch of businesses, but forgot to inform the landlord, when he wants to sell the building, Marigold needs a stand in.

This is such a fun episode, plenty of caustic comments. It's Ernest that provides most of the laughs, telling Marigold she looks like a tart, and later making a spectacle of himself at the meal.

It surprised me that this only got a single series, it's lots of fun, this is a very zany episode, the plots are wacky, but the characters very likeable. Aubrey Morris was particularly eccentric as Mullins.

Good fun. 8/10
