I'm surprised I've never noticed the background scenery before - seeing the High Street when the workmen bring in the door, and also the damaged pier behind Godfrey as he talking to Jones and Frazer.
You've also got to feel for Hodges - diddled out of a couple of quid by Mainwaring when the job was a chair away from being complete. No wonder the Warden hates Napoleon!
I should add that it makes a change for Frazer to pass the buck when it comes to delivering bad news as he generally takes great pleasure in reminding certain individuals that misfortune is coming their way. Thank goodness the phone rates were cheaper at night or poor Godfrey could have been homeless!
