In I’m Entitled, which is a continuation of the previous episode Where’s My Trouble and Strife, Harry Dooley is trying to make inroads into joining the Salvation Army in a bid to find out where his wife is (she has left him and started a new life, Major Gibbs and his wife tracked her down but she made it plain she didn’t want Harry to find out where she is).
Harry breaks into Major Gibbs’ office to get his hands on the report that the Major made about the investigation into the whereabouts of his wife. However when he pays a visit to her bedsit she makes it plain she will have nothing to do with him.
Despite being given one last chance by Major Cartwright, James Pope is unable to stay sober and is asked to leave. Cartwright arranges a place for Pope at a drying out clinic but he refuses to go, instead taking to the road.
It would be interesting to know whether the series was planned to fit an hour long slot at some stage as beside the first episode, the other stories so far have been two parters. This and Where’s My Trouble and Strife have been the best of the series so far, thanks in no small part to the script by the always reliable Tony Hoare.
