Episode chronology

"Sex and the Country" is an episode of the BBC sitcom, The Green Green Grass. It was first screened on 14 October 2005, as the sixth episode of series one.[1]


Tyler approaches his English teacher and asks for a date. She declines, saying your education comes first! But this doesn't stop Tyler buying her a box of make up, which leads to his parents thinking he likes to dress up as a woman. In the end, Tyler makes it clear that it was a present for his teacher, which then heats things up as Marlene wants to give the English teacher what for. But Boycie goes to see her instead, and she makes it clear that she is not interested in Tyler, she only likes older men - so she is about to seduce Boycie (thus showing a female weakness to Boycie that was not shown in Only Fools and Horses) when her father Llewellyn stumbles in on the two of them. We have changed the description in the photo to Tyler's teacher, as this was a slight blunder. Tyler's girlfriend was actually Beth. Straight after being turned down by his teacher he asked Beth on a date and Beth accepted. He even claimed he bought the present for her, which he had actually bought it for his teacher. Meanwhile, Elgin, Bryan, Jed and Mrs Cakeworthy concoct a potion for Rocky the bull, to make him more attracted to the female sex. Marlene then assumes it would make Boycie more sexually driven if he was to take a sip, so without him knowing she slips some in his coffee - But, what she doesn't know is that she gave him a different potion, and that Boycie has been drinking the same potion that the cows use to increase the size of their udders.
