Editor's NoteThe hit British comedy returns in all its bawdy glory with this second collection of episodes from the fifth series of the show. Rene (Gorden Kaye) is constantly beleaguered by problems, most of them caused by his overbearing wife. A botched attempt at getting rid of her by faking his own death leads his troublesome spouse to take over the reins of Rene's cafe, which he leaves to her in his will. Returning as his identical twin brother, he has to renege on his agreement to marry his shapely waitresses Yvette (Vicki Michelle) and Maria (Francesca Gonshaw), and attempt to win back the heart of his former wife in order to regain control of his cafe! Meanwhile, the Second World War rages on around Rene and the cast of oddballs, but this seems to be the least of their problems in this riotously funny show.
