Characters: , , , , , ,
  • David collects the petition from the Bull and plans to deliver it to Graham Ryder later, Sid’s talking up the Easter activities on offer in the pub (including the untested egg-bowling) but seems generally distracted …

He doesn’t even seem disappointed that she’s busy (although she seems a little put off by him weighing in with help, rather than ripping her overalls off)!
