The Goodies

When the Minister for Trade and Domestic Affairs, a gossipy woman named Prudence, asks the Goodies for help with a delicate matter, Tim nips outside to a phone box to pretend that he is the team’s female consultant. Reassured that her problem is in good hands, Prudence explains that she needs to retrieve some compromising photos of herself and a waiter, taken while at the ‘Playgirl Club’. After Bill and Graeme press-gang Tim into going undercover dressed as a woman, Tim enjoys his time amongst the gorgeous girls in the club so much that he refuses to leave. After three weeks Bill and Graeme decide to go in after their friend – but the only way to do that is to disguise themselves as ‘Wolf’ waiters…
