Episode 28: THE TENDER TRAP
Written by Bruce Crowther
Directed by Ben Bolt
Bulman and Willis search a country house without warrant and narrowly escape from a vengeful caretaker armed with a shotgun. The local policewoman, Sgt Jill Tender, tries to cheer them up. Bennett, meanwhile, poses as a journalist trying to extract information from jazz musician Richard Barkham.
The characterization of Bulman goes back to The XYY Man for this episode.
Absolutely hilarious! Watch out for the sequence in which Willis tries to help the Sergeant with her car repair efforts. Great incidental music.
