Thick As Thieves: Good Conduct (ITV 15 June 1974, with Michael Robbins)



In Good Conduct, having saved a young boy from drowning Dobbs is being treated as a local hero complete with an article in the local paper.

The funny thing is George and Stan are actually, deep down, best friends.

This week’s episode had a nice one and a half page feature on Bob Hoskins. It focused on the jobs he had done before acting success, including time spent on a kibbutz.

Thick As Thieves Good Conduct

In best Morecambe and Wise fashion Stan and Dobbs have been forced to share a bed.
