The Gold Plate Robbery
A Christmas Carol
Gryptpype and Moriarty have hapless Ken Connor diagnosed with poverty so that they can rob him of his National Health prescription for £50.
Harry Secombe was "indisposed" at the time of recording, so Kenneth Connor as his own eponymous character was brought in to replace him in the story.
