In Crisis, Hammonds really is in a state of crisis with the Dock strike in full swing and costing the company a fortune every hour it goes on. Surprisingly it is David (and Bill Riley) who leaps into action to get a vital Hammond truck out of the Docks embargo. Meanwhile Brian is still proving to be somewhat ineffectual against Ann’s constant haranguing of him to buy a larger house.
Quite the action packed episode this with David well to the fore once again. Brian and Ann too are reaching crisis point in their relationship as she seems unable and decidedly unwilling to accept Brian’s decisions on anything.
