Series 4. I'm thinking A Gift From Fidel? Could be Our Men in Havana though.

Dennis calls Oz outside and that's when they have the Cramlington/Bedlington exchange :)

Spot on Si....

It ends with Dennis and a classic scene for me.

Oz - "Am ganning back to work...."
Dennis - *pauses....* "Aww bollocks!......"

Loved the 'Gift From Fidel' episode the most from series 4. But haven't watched it for two years or abouts.

Love series 4 me.
Anyway back to the prequel.

Getting kicked out of Berwick would be good. And his relationship with his staunch catholic bride perhaps?

I'd be interested in seeing what 'Hacksaw' Sid Henderson was like, who Barry worked with just before he arrived in the hut.

Richard, I wouldn't be down with a prequel. I had a hard enough time accepting the new Rod as he looks completely different from young Rod. And given the cast weren't that old to begin with, it would be a stretch imagining new actors playing them supposedly less than ten years younger. Probably for the best would be a series of novels, so we can imagine the original cast as their younger selves without the distraction of a new cast.
