Man At The Top: Don’t Rock The Boat (ITV 1972, Paul Hardwick)

In Don’t Rock The Boat Joe is now personal assistant to Sir George Hudson whose company is on the verge of going for a major merger, the problem is though the merger has been organised by Sir George’s brother and Sir George himself is not keen, worse still Henry Webster Joe’s previous boss at Maclaine’s is now working at Hudsons.

Sir George wants Joe to get rid of him and Joe, naturally enough, is more than keen to do so. Two can play at underhand tactics though and Webster “accidentally” lets slip to Susan that Joe had a fling with Sir George’s new wife Sandra.

Highly charged episode of Man at the Top this one, it seems that Susan keeps having major dramas to deal and once again she is on the verge of breakdown thanks to Joe’s skullduggery and bed hopping ways.
