Episode 34 - "The Bay of Pigs" - (May 18th 1998 8.00-11.00pm)

pub signSu Parsons had just finished her rendition of 'Love Hangover' and was was milking the applause. She became all 'Shirley Bassey' and waved at people and smiled a lot. Hummer Thompson, who had been sipping on his brown ale and watching with interest, turned to Clunch Parsons and observed, "Yor 'ol girl Su's got a fair set 'o railings int she Cluncher". Parsons, who in forty seven years had never really taken much notice of his sisters teeth, looked curiously at Hummer and replied, "Yis. I 'spose she hes" "Yis" continued Hummer, "She's got a big 'ol arse an all.... I'm just gorn outside to make sure no young buggers hev let my tyres down" and with that, Hummer walked off to leave Clunch wondering what had made Hummer reveal this hitherto unremarked interest in his sister. He had to admit that she had been especially sassy tonight and he realised that the young detective, Farcett, had been the target of her smouldering.

Meanwhile, at the bar, Fiona Morgan was having a laugh at Farcett's expense. "I'm obviously far too young for you Yaxley. You seem to have that certain something that the more mature woman is after". Farcett pulled the peak of his baseball cap down over his eyes to hide his embarrassment and replied "Give over, Fiona. I've only spoken to her once, when I dumped my stuff off today. I was going to interview her but I daren't now. She'll bloody eat me alive " Johnny Swift laughed loudly and shouted, "She can eat me any time she likes man. I've not been on anyones menu for a long time".

gretsch guitarSu Parsons had made way for Jak Jackson, who had produced his beloved Gretch guitar and was quietly playing some blues guitar while people went to the bar for drinks. Su walked over to Yaxley and purred, "Evening bor. When are yew gonna interview me then. Om lookin' forward to it". The transformation from smouldering American Diva to Fenland landlady was complete. Yaxley no longer felt threatened. "I've been meaning to see you Mrs.Parsons. Will tomorrow morning be ok ?" Su leaned forward, stroked Yaxley under the chin and breathed heavily, "Tomorrow morning will be jest farn Yaxley. We can talk over brekfust !" Yaxley felt threatened again. Just his luck to get a landlady with a pseudo American personality disorder.

As Yaxley and Fiona were discussing the seriousness of Su's 'threat', the front door of The Skaters Run burst open and in rushed the distressed person of Hummer Thompson, obviously shaken up. So much so that he was having problems speaking properly. piggies"The...the...the.....bloomin'...bloomin'.....soddin'....things. Everyhere. All up the street." Clunch Parson's quickly went up to Hummer to calm him down. "Wos up Hum ?" he asked kindly. Before Hummer could make himself understood the growing sound of squealing and shrieking got louder and louder. A grunting, angry, uncontrolled noise of fear and excitement. Everyone in the pub made a rush for the door leaving Hummer and Clunch sitting at a table. Brian Worthington got to the door first and was greeted by the sight of Clive Lancaster, who had been strolling to the pub for a quick one before last orders, sprinting past with the peak of his cap flapping in the breeze and his barbour jacket flying behind him like an agricultural Batman. About ten yards behind him were about twenty five snorting, snarling, grunting pigs who were obviously not in best humour. Brian began to laugh and turned round to shout to the crowd that had got stuck in the bottleneck behind him, "Our John's saddleback's are out ! Come on everyone. The stupid buggers are heading off down to the river !"
