And on my Virtual Season episodes go. Have I no mercy?
10) Trick Shot
Heyes and Curry join the circus – but the fun stops when a trick shot goes horribly wrong. Parts of plot gratefully filched from Agatha Christie
11) A Grizzly End
Heyes and Curry discover there are predators more dangerous than grizzlies to deal with when they act as guides to a group of rich tourists. (Originally a VS. Anyone believing they spot elements of CSI Miami and Deadwood – is right!)
12) A Horse of a Different Colour
Heyes and Curry – with a little help from Diamond Jim – help Alice and Kurt deal with a loan shark, a little race fixing, and a right royal VIP. (Another one blatently cribbing from Hustle.)
13) A Quiet Night In
When Alias Smith & Jones was cancelled in America, a suggestion floated that, since it was the most popular import ever shown on BBC2, the Beeb might commission its own version. It never happened. But – if it had…? Imagine a modest budget, no guest stars, no horses, a single set. Sit back with a nice cup of tea and enjoy – A Quiet Night In.
14) Saving The Old JoAnna

16) Whiskey Galore

17) What’s in the Box?
