Rik Mayall Presents:
First broadcast on 03/06/1993 by ITV this was one of six (and for my money, the best) one-off comedy dramas starring Rik Mayall.
Mayall plays a public schoolboy who is drugged on his stag night by his friends and put on a train to Scarborough with the stripper from his party. The stripper is played by Helen Bonham-Carter. (Naked Helena Period-Drama breasts alert.) Martin Clunes also appears.
The result is a lovely piece of romantic comedy. And it's beautifully shot, Scarborough is as much a star in this as the two leads.
This has already been uploaded. Kudos to pitters for putting this up. There was some muttering behind the bikeshed that the file was a bit big and could a smaller one be provided.

I'm amazed that there isn't DVDrip of this available as there seems to be for all of the other Rik Mayall Presents films.
