When the Dog Dies, Series 3 Episode 1 of 6

30 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 11 January 2013

Ronnie Corbett returns for a third series of his popular sitcom by Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent.

Ronnie plays Sandy Hopper, who is growing old happily along with his dog Henry. His grown up children - both married to people Sandy doesn't approve of at all - would like him to move out of the family home so they can get their hands on the money earlier. But Sandy's not having it. He's not moving until the dog dies. And not just that, how can he move if he's got a lodger? His daughter is convinced that his too attractive lodger Dolores is also after Sandy and his money.

Luckily, Sandy has three grandchildren and, sometimes, a friendly word or a kindly hand on the shoulder can really help a Granddad in the twenty-first century. Man and dog together face a complicated world. And there's every chance they'll make it more so.

Episode One - Where there's A Will
Sandy has made a new will and son-in-law Blake can't wait to see what it says. Dolores suggests a phoney will to give Blake the shock of his life. When the penny drops, Blake exacts his revenge.
