The Good Life: Suit Yourself

The Goods are well on their way with spinning and weaving their own cloth from lambswool. They have even discovered how to die the wool using nettles, walnuts and onion skins.

Andrew (Sir) suddenly announces that he is retiring from JJM's. He invites Margot and Jerry and his rivals for the Managing Directorship, Snetterton and Dalby, out for dinner where a good deal of rivalry, one-upmanship and backstabbing occurs. Jerry has even drafted a plan for the expansion of JJMs, but unfortunately drops his draft in the Goods' front garden on his way to the dinner.

It is up to Tom and Barbara to save the day.

Episode Goofs
The 'fleeces' which Barbara unloads from the cart near the beginning of the episode are actually sheepskin rugs. Spinning yarn from these would be a virtual impossibility.
