Doctor McCeavedy, who signals undertaker Frazer deaths, accidentally discovers his life savings, hundreds of sovereigns, and tells Mainwaring the scrooge should be persuaded to put the fortune in safety. The captain's lecture on money in wartime, after Jones' ludicrous demonstration of fixing bayonets while wearing a gas mask, fails to secure the banker a fat annuity commission, he's even called not trustworthy. However the rumor soon spreads, so after half of Walmington beleaguers Frazer in vain for generosity that never comes, he misses his first parade ever to 'secure' his gold, so they all try to spy where he would bury it at night.Written by
Frazer's money was worth around £130,000 in 2015 depending what formula you use to calculate such things. See more »
Captain Mainwaring. I've only got one thing to say to you. If you think you're getting your hands on my gold you can think again. I don't trust banks, I don't trust bankers and I don't trust you. That's all I wanted to say. Thank you.

Doctor McCeavedy drops in on Frazer one evening to advise his services will soon be needed for a recently deceased patient. The Doctor inadvertently hits over Frazer's cash box, hundreds of gold sovereigns, the frugal Scotsman is terrified when it gets out, and all want his gold.
They really make the most of the stereotypical tight Scotsman joke, it's a definite favourite episode, with Laurie doing a great job. Frazer is portrayed as a Scrooge like character. The scenes of him at his counting table gleefully counting his gold are terrific, he was a truly talented actor.
Great to see Fulton MacKay here, better known of course for Porridge, he did of course feature earlier in the series as a different character.
You'll never get your hands on my Gold. Great episode. 9/10
