The Good Companions: On The Road (S1EP4 ITV 5 Dec 1980, with Frank Mills)

Published

on


In On The Road rehearsals get under way for the re-named Concert Party troupe The Good Companions with Miss Trant even going so far as to buy new costumes for the gang. Meanwhile her sister Hilda turns up to try and persuade her to give up her dreams of managing the CP.

Some nice touches at play here, especially with Jeremy Nicholas’ Inigo getting grips with the songs of the party and his burgeoning friendship with Susie Dean.
