Storyline

Harold invites convict's wife Marcia Wigley back for sex and they have to wait until Albert goes to bed. Harold's bed collapses after Marcia has fled pursued by a bed bug. He goes to the Bayswater Bedorama and spends two hundred pounds on an erotic water-bed but unfortunately he trusts Albert to plug it in in time for his next session with Marcia. He ends up, quite literally, having his ardour dampened. Written by don @ minifie-1

And So to Bed
17 January 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Harold brings a date home, Marcia and she is certainly up for it. Albert meanwhile is still up mending old shoes and making a racket. It is putting Harold off and Marcia is frustrated. After all she and her husband are swingers although he is in jail.

When they finally get to the bedroom it turns out that Harold's room is in a right state and he has bed bugs causing Marcia to flee. Also Albert is not keen on Harold bringing a lady home. Another bugbear of mine of sitcoms of that era. Here you have a fully grown man in his forties who is not allowed to have a sex life.

Harold decides to get a new bed and goes to a store to meet a snooty salesman who flogs him a waterbed. The movements are very conducive to a bit of nookie. Once delivered Harold leaves it to Albert to fix the plug. When Harold brings Marcia round to try the waterbed, things turned out to be a bit waterlogged and Harold turns manic towards Albert.

As in the previous episode this very much has the mid 1970s look about it in fashion and hairstyles. Even maybe being a little coarser, Marcia's skirt is so short you can glimpse her knickers.

The fun bit is when they both try out the beds at the shop and the salesman is far from impressed Harold and Albert who he thinks have mistaken the shop for the bookies.
