Episode 14.3: Wicket Keeper’s Desire

Still stuck together with hair gel, Constance and a newly-confident Reg roam the town, attempting to make people befriend Constance. They have limited success. Meanwhile, Fred is wandering about completely hammered. At the pub, Gina and AJ discuss loneliness. Gina misses Dick and AJ is yearning for Eliza. They decide to do something nice for Eliza and go decorate her bookshop with bunting.

After a blazing row, Candy and Eliza bury the hatchet and become friends. Eliza even gives Candy a job at her shop. Back across town, the hair gel wears off and Reg and Constance finally come unstuck. But without his confidence-inspiring gel, Reg plunges to new depths of awkwardness and angst. He seeks out the lovelorn AJ and they form an introspective indie rock duo.

Memorable Moments:

  • Fred’s naming of all the ales in the pub (bizarre names, such as the title of this show summary!)
  • Gina and AJ’s paper-people chain that looks like a ‘mutant elephant orgy’
  • Various Bunting Dances including the inimitable ‘We’re Putting Up the Bunting’

Will Reg find new confidence in song-writing?
Will Fred ever sober up?
Will AJ ask Eliza on a date?
How will Candi get on in her new job?
