Martin is the king of DIY, a busybody know-it-all who runs (or tries to run) the community. His uptight personality drives some folks up the wall, but let's face it, if it weren't people like him nothing would get done. He's a great organiser--the Residents' Association, the boys' football team, the Rotary Club--whatever he can get involved with. If there's a lamp post on the blink, he's the one who phones the Council. He has a rather boring job in middle management and real life starts on Friday night when he gets home to his committees. Fundamentally he's a very good man. He's also a pompous bore.The local residents tend to regard Martin as a bit of a joke, although he does have a hard core of faithful followers, like Howard and Hilda, who generally give their full support to Martin's many schemes. And his wife, Ann, is a patient and loving ally, although she is at times driven to despair by her husband's inability to relax and by his unawareness of her needs and expectations. Ann receives more attention from their new neighbor, Paul, than she gets from Martin--although Martin doesn't have time to notice such things. What he does notice, however, is the way Paul likes to ridicule him. And to a man who takes himself as seriously as Martin does, this is the ultimate insult.EPISODES:1. Martin has invited his old friend Mrs. Beardsmore and her friends from the old people's home to tea. Events slide decidedly downhill. Can Martin's improvisations around bingo rescue the day?2. Ann and Martin are planning a dinner party for Paul and his girlfriend. Ann anticipates the event going smoothly, but why is Martin buying up all sorts of obscure apertifs for his dinner guests?3. Martin and his cricket teammates are happily preparing for their next match, when Paul announces that he had played for Cambridge and would like to join in. Can Martin's psyche permit him to let Paul go to bat?4. Ann must go into the hospital for minor surgery and is concerned about the house's upkeep in her absence. Martin insists that he is up to managing on his own, but when things turn for the worse, help comes from an unexpected quarter.5. Martin has great hopes for winning the upcoming snooker tournament, but his heart sinks when he finds out that Paul is also pointing towards the event. Is there nothing at which Paul cannot be beat?6. Ann has become quite tired of her stay-at-home existence, but she is not interested in the crafts projects Martin suggests. However, her interest is peaked when Paul offers her a job in his salon. What will Martin have to say to this?7. At Paul's party, Ann meets at psychiatrist and believes he may be just the person to help Martin over his hyper-activity. Little known to her, Martin believes that the one needing professional help is Ann.
