Boabby is persuaded to have a lock-in at The Clansman to mark the passing of Craiglang's much respected undertaker, so the regulars enjoy outdoing each other with stories of the most famous person they've ever met, dead or alive. After news spreads that a creepy new undertaker, Sheathing, has moved into Craiglang, nobody quite knows what to make of him. Isa, who's heard the stories, spreads the fear amongst the residents that he's the grim reaper. Jack decides to figure out who this mysterious new undertaker really is. But when Isa turns up at Victor's door in a complete panic and Sheathing appears unannounced, Jack and Victor have no option but to take matters into their own hands.
