About the Show

Roger, always broke, hits on the idea of running Edith’s spare bedroom as a bed and breakfast – a plan he hasn’t quite got round to sharing with his mother. And when his first guests arrive just as Joan – Edith’s difficult sister – comes to say, chaos in the house reaches its peak.

Roger and Bob the burglar decide to become buskers, with Methuselah the crocodile (Roger’s glove puppet) doing the singing. Surprisingly, they’re a big hit, but their lack of a licence leads to trouble with the police.

Meanwhile Wendy, now divorced from Roger, surprises everyone by writing a bestselling children’s book about a family of lemmings. But Phil is outraged when he realises the antics of the lemming family are directly based on all of them.

And romance is blossoming for Sandra, with the last person anyone would expect. Phil’s irritated she might pip him and Edith to the altar. Will they finally tie the knot and make it to that balcony in the sun?
