Producers: Greg Di Santis; Howard Malin

Keywords: Sex Comedy

A married air traffic controllers buys a new E-type Jaguar, becoming so attached to the car that he won't so much as permit his wife to touch it. She borrows it anyway, ending up in a rather compromising position with the original salesman, requiring highly public extrication. The husband does not take kindly to this state of affairs.

Julie Walters, quoted by Lucy Ellis and Bryony Sutherland in Seriously Funny (2012): "E-types are very phallic with their long noses, but, ooh, they are uncomfortable. We had padding and anti-cramp tablets, but we were still covered in bruises by the time we'd finish those scenes. You would have to be really desperate to do that."
