Tonight the acting bug strikes Roland's incompetent crew. All of them deserve an award.... not for acting, but for keeping their names on the credits. Special rodent guest star is Ross Davidson in a multi-million pound remake of The Bridge on the River Kwai, Ross's first starring role since he kicked the bucket in EastEnders. Other guests include
John Challis and Nik Kershaw , not to mention the irrepressible Darcey de Farcey (JAMES SAXON) and the gorgeous
Maureen McConkey (ANNA KAREN).
