White Gold Close Encounters (2017– ) Online

Vincent is visited by formidable tax inspector Miss Barnes, whom he is anxious to avoid, leading him to invest in pirate video sales. Meanwhile Brendan, the firm's fitter, talks Brian into photographing his teen-aged daughter Donna for a competition for a sleazy tabloid, prompting Brian to establish his own soft porn company with Martin's reluctant help. Martin finds himself as Miss Barnes' unwitting sex partner, which partially vindicates Vincent but lands Brian with a tax bill when his videos are discovered.

User reviews



I did wonder how they would sustain a series of dodgy double glazing salesmen. This episode expands the brief a little and is rather a lot of fun although some of the 1980s soundtrack is all over the place.

The taxwoman is after Vincent Swan, he does not believe in paying taxes and she is rather dogged. It does mean Swan has to spend more time with his kids at home and taking them to the school musical where he gets friendly with the nice teacher.

Fitzpatrick meanwhile gets involved in soft porn with Brendan's daughter but some home viewers get an eyeful when they watch a pirated copy of ET.

Poor Lavender he has to help Swan out by taking out the taxwoman, he pays a hefty bill for it.


This episode took Vincent from the conniving salesman bit to an all out conman, fraud and cheater, both on his taxes and his wife. I didn't love that, but it surely was entertaining.

The porno bits were a little weird, but sometimes comedy does need to get awkward to be funny. This certainly hit a 10 on the awkward scale.
