The Story

We're back in the home of Sir Henry Bulgeon-Plunger & his family. Sir Henry's son, Willy, is returning from an expedition to the Amazon basin. But Willy has a few surprises for his father...




This and Who Needs Kitchener have exactly the same story premise, a parody of Upstairs, Downstairs and a new person to the house (Bernard Bresslaw for each show). the humour is virtually non-existent except for the odd burst of unsubtle innuendo. Jack Douglas returns to his Alf persona as the butler, and plays it very nicely, as only he can. Very poor indeed.
