In History Doesn’t Pay the Rent, Sam Brodie and John Killane once again have opposing points of view over an issue that Sam considers to be of vital importance to the town of Andersley.
The Wagon Sheds, where Brodie was apprenticed as a young man, are being threatened with closure, which would once again mean the loss of more jobs. Killane’s point of view is that the closure would mean the likelihood of the new factory estate getting passed increasing. Somewhat surprisingly Ernest Dewhurst, leader of the Labour run town council, is also not against that idea.
Alongside another appearance for Hilary Dwyer and Bill Owen, familiar faces also include Jacqueline Pearce, best known as Blake’s 7 villain Servalan, character actor William Moore who played the put upon father in Ronnie Corbett sitcom Sorry.
