In Marjorie Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, with a few days to spare before heading off to Spain the boys all travel to Newcastle for some R and R unfortunately Oz (who is putting up Moxy and Barry) discovers he has nowhere to stay with his estranged wife Marjorie having moved out of their council flat. Worse still he learns that she is planning to move to Italy with her new Italian boyfriend. Oz is determined to have one last visit with his son before they go. Wayne reveals to Brenda that his wife Christa is pregnant but she no longer wants to have a relationship with him.
One of two episodes which allow the boys some breathing space between adventures, a time for reflection as both Oz and Wayne realise their marriages are over once and for all. Watch out for a small role for Denise Welch (Welch was married to Tim Healy).
