In To Honour and Obey it is the wedding day of Paul Merroney and April Winter (with the reception taking place at the palatial home of the Winter family) and Brian acting as best man. Merroney though is more concerned (as usual) with the fact that Sir Neville is seriously ill which could present an opportunity for the Winter family to take overall control of the bank leaving April’s brother Simon as new head of the bank. He wants Brian to persuade his mother to see Sir Neville (who actually isn’t allowed visitors) to put in a good word for him.
Meanwhile Ted and Jennifer almost don’t make it to the church after Jenny runs into a pair of cyclists who try to make things difficult for them.
The season begins with the glamour of a wedding even if Merroney would rather be having a business chat with Sir Neville (who doesn’t appear in this episode and dies off screen before the second episode starts).
There was also a new title sequence for what turned out to be the final season.
