Storyline

Polly and Jonathan move into her father's house in the country, a move which begins badly when Jonathan accidentally frees two burglars. Polly attends a parish council meeting where they learn that local lottery winner and community benefactor Leonard Corbyn has been arrested for indecent offences and later Jonathan visits grumpy old psychic Eric Ipswich who has a stroke and is hospitalized. Whilst helping Polly's friend Alison Chater and her vicar husband, the Creeks are amazed to find Corbyn's winning lottery numbers written on a wall by Ipswich some half a century earlier. As Polly starts to have nightmares about childhood bogey-man the Sandman, the parish magazine declares sightings of a sinister nocturnal beast on the prowl. Written by don @ minifie-1

This season started badly and it didn't improve with this episode. All of the characters--Jonathan's wife included--are so unlikeable as to be off-putting, and the "humor" is in such poor taste as to be borderline offensive. I'm not sure what the writers were going for with this season, but I'm left wondering why on earth Jonathan would stay with his wife and subject himself to all of this. I'm certainly not going to watch the rest of the season.
