Sir David Jason returns for a second series of Roy Clarke's much loved sitcom, reprising his role as Granville running the shop with his son, Leroy and continuing to serve the locals with a keen and inventive eye on a profit. Over the series, beginning with a Christmas episode, Granville is still being frustrated in his courtship of the forgetful Mavis by her formidable sister, Madge. He is sure however, that under Gastric's noisy stomach lies a man that would be deeply attractive to Madge and could distract her from his wooing of Mavis. Can he get them together? There's more romance with Mrs. Featherstone who has her eye on a new local, Mr. Newbold but can she surrender her desire for Granville? Elsewhere, Nurse Gladys has a new job to keep her occupied and Mrs Hussein is always full of local gossip. And Eric and Cyril are always in trouble with their wives but luckily they have Granville to sell them a solution.
