IMDb claims Pat Coombs only appeared in one episode, but she actually appeared in two.

"Happy Haunting" where the gang go to a stately home was the first.

"United We Stand" in which a developer wants to turn their yard into a car park is the second.

(I think she was the caretaker's wife or housekeeper in happy haunting and the secretary of the developer in united we stand)

I've just seen them all again (after 20 or more years and they're still brilliant. If a little dated now.

Bet if you showed them to kids today though, they'd still like it.

I agree with the other poster, it's well deserving of a repeat.
