Almost a reunion of the Fawlty Towers cast with both Prunella Scales and Brian Hall appearing.
The producers are already thinking how can you make arriving to Jersey look exciting. In the first episode Jim arrives by plane. Here he is on the Jetfoil. I think anything is better than the Sealink ferry.
Jim is following a drug courier Raymond Dumoitier from Paris to Jersey. When he is arrested the police can find nothing on him.
Fate had it that Raymond was pick-pocketed on the boat by a young lad called Simon who plans to make money by selling the drugs.
Raymond though is in trouble with the man who he is working for. Ex-racing driver Bobby Carnegie whose henchman is looking for Simon having beaten up Raymond.
Charlie Hungerford in this episode knows both Bobby and Simon's mother. Jim requests Charlie's help knowing Simon might be in trouble.
This is clearly going to be a theme in Bergerac, Charlie Hungerford knows all the villains or their associates in each episode.
I did like the fight between Jim and Bobby. Both men with a dodgy leg. A handicap match.
