In the eighth and final episode, Put Out to Grass, Brigadier Wells has been retired from the army but is struggling to get used to the idea. Newly arrived in the area he starts to make a bit of a nuisance of himself pointing out the failings of the hostel.
Meanwhile Benny Cartwright is on the verge of becoming a “soldier”. His wife Janie is very disturbed about his new found religiosity but eventually the pair reach a sort of compromise over his involvement with the Sally Ann.
The episode is enlivened by a great guest appearance from Bill Owen as Brigadier Wells, he might be something of a nuisance and quick to point out what he sees as errors but he proves invaluable when a new resident at the hostel starts causing trouble.
