These days, Frankie Abbott (David Barry, who had previously played the
role on the series Please Sir! [1968 - '71] and The
Fenn Street Gang [1971 - '73]) is reduced to spend the rest of his
days in some kind of home, with his attractive young carer nurse Agnes
(Emma Dark) looking after his every need. But while his body might have
gotten on a bit, his mind has remained young and full of imagination - so
it's no wonder that he eventually dreams he's made the guest of
honour"of a vampire feast, attended besides nurse Agnes also by vamps
Clarissa Cobra (Caroline Munro) and Vera Vomit (Judy Matheson) besides
creepy psychiatrist Dr Spritzer (Martin Rudman) - and it takes him a while
