Hot Metal

By the start of series two, Geoffrey Palmer's character Harry Stringer was missing presumed dead in the Bermuda Triangle. His edgy replacement was TV political chat show host Dickie Lipton (Richard Wilson) who suffered as many humiliations as his predecessor. In the midst of a nervous breakdown, he called on assistance from Sooty and Sweep to help him edit the paper, before streaking on Blue Peter! Palmer returned for a Comic Relief special, shown on BBC1 in 1989.
