The chips are down for Henry Crabbe - hand-cut Maris Pipers , double fried to make them crispy and served with minted mushy peas, as he is at pains to point out.
How to make real chips is the culinary tip in this, the last episode of the series. Perhaps it is this "free recipe with every episode" that has contributed to the success of Andrew Payne 's drama series, although it's more likely to be the way viewers have taken Richard Griffiths and his cop-turned-cook to their hearts. Not surprisingly another series is currently being planned.
In n Endangered Species,
Crabbe is called in to arrest the ringleaderofagroupprotesting against the building of a new road - but some protesters are uncomfortably close to home.

A second marriage, Dr Johnson once observed, is the triumph of hope over experience. In ... for Worse the second of two documentaries about matrimony in Britain, six people who have each been married at least four times talk about their experience of divorce and repeated marital failures.
The programme opens at one couple's divorce party, but not all the splits were so amicable and some of them resulted from physical abuse. Among those sharing their views is Annabel, a Catholic who is about to marry for the fifth time and yet still believes it will be for ever, and four-times-divorced Tony who thinks it is the exclusivity of a marriage contract that results in its failure.
