In 'Mending Stuart's Leg' Stuart (Reginald Barratt) has a strange click in his knee, which seems to be infectious. 'The Great Boarding House Caper' is the first in a two-part story where the protagonists travel to Scarborough for the weekend, a story that is concluded in 'Cheering Up Gordon' where the boys try to tutor Gordon (Philip Jackson) in how to chat-up girls. 'The Kink in Foggy's Niblick' features Foggy attempting to hobnob with the nobs at a golf club. In 'Going to Gordon's Wedding' Big Malcolm (Paul Luty) turns up at Gordon's wedding, causing all sorts of problems. 'Isometrics and After', the final episode in the third series, sees Foggy deciding that Comp and Clegg are not as fit as they ought to be. A bit of 'isometrics' should soon sort them out... 'Ferret Come Home' sees one of Compo's ferrets escaping and moving into Nora Batty (Kathy Staff)'s house. Can Wally (Joe Gladwin) save the day? In 'Getting On Sidney's Wire' Sid (John Comer), who is trying to install a new bell for the door of the cafe, makes the mistake of asking for the help of Compo, Clegg and Foggy. 'Jubilee' sees Foggy arranging a float for the Silver Jubilee celebrations. In 'Flower Power Cut' Clegg becomes convinced he can communicate with plants, while 'Who Made a Bit of a Splash in Wales Then?' sees Foggy romancing a Welsh widow.
