In this missing link between "The Black Stuff" and "Boys From" - why this wasn't included in the DVD realease is a mystery - Pete Postlethwaite excels as the out of his depth Duggan and the piece has all the warmth and incisive writing you'd expect from Bleasedale.

It went out under the Play for Today banner in 1981 as a stop-gap measure while Bleasdale finished writing the other five.
