In All Clean and Paid For Gamble and Hicks investigate a tally shop (Hire Purchase) run by Kathleen Finbow, her chief salesman, Marchmont, is more than willing to overstep the bounds of legality when it comes to taking orders. Things have reached a head when one of his clients commits suicide.
Finbow’s headquarters are located in the middle of a planned bypass, she is also trying to sell the business before the bypass is given council approval. Finbow is involved with prominent councillor Charles Eaden who has been doing his best to hold off on planning approval until the sale of the business goes through.
A strong guest appearance for Martin Shaw as the crooked Marchmont as well as appearances from Ralph Michael and Colette O’Neill (who had recently been seen in Spindoe). On the downside it’s quite a shouty episode.
This is the first episode so far to make it wholly plain that the series is set in the Midlands with most of the supporting players having quite prominent accents.
