In His and Hers? The final episode of the first series Daphne and Roland are going through something of a rough patch and getting tired of living on top of each other. Both decide that enough is enough and make the decision to move out, although neither has the money (£800) to pay out the other’s half of the lease. Moody suggests playing a game to decide who goes and stays, Daphne is very keen and suggests Poker!
Daphne wins easily and Roland moves into the antiques shop, later following a visit from George, Daphne is convinced that he wants to take their friendship to a new level – however he just wants to tell her he is off for a few weeks. Meanwhile Daphne’s Aunt Ethel pays her another visit and Daphne quickly realises she needs Roland back….
A nice end to the season, Daphne and Roland at loggerheads as it opens and back to being comfortable with each other by the end, at one stage it looks like George is actually going to do something in this episode as he helps Daphne put up some curtains and admires her legs but no he is really only after a cheese sandwich. We would have liked to have seen the relationship between Daphne and Sid develop a bit further after their night out a couple of episodes ago but that seems to have been forgotten about although Sid on the other hand does remark that he likes Daphne.
