The Tramp Who Would Be Queenie

Dave Against the Machine Episode 4 of 4

Dave Lamb's brand new sitcom series about conspiracy theorist Dave Railings reaches its conclusion with the return to public life of Princess Diana...well possibly.

When Dave's deeply frustrated younger brother Jim invites a homeless person to come and live in their highly secured flat so that he can impress a charity worker he fancies, Dave becomes convinced that the homeless person in question is actually Princess Diana who is desperately in need of his help.

At the same time community police officers Nigel Spikes and Geoff Brown find themselves bottom of the arrests league table and Nigel hits upon the idea of rounding up the homeless in order to propel them towards mid-table respectability. Another hectic romp through half-truths and false assumptions sees four grown men battle to seal the fate of a woman who calls herself Queenie, and culminates in a way that no-one saw coming, not even the deeply paranoid Dave.
