In A Regular Friend young unmarried mother of two Carol Greggs is in court accused of defrauding the Social Security System, she has been claiming benefit as a single parent living alone however the Social Security Department claim she has been living with a man called Paddy Hooney.
Unfortunately she doesn’t have representation in court and when Paddy takes the stand the case against her is very quickly proven. Social Worker Miss Owen provides a sympathetic outlook on Carol’s case but her mother does more harm than good when she makes a statement.
Lots of familiar faces popping up in this episode including Sheila White in the lead looking very down at heel, a young Jill Gascoine, Bill Dean, Robin Parkinson and Kenneth Waller.
