In this classic TV sitcom, Gordon Brittas (Chris Barrie) is the manager of Whitbury New Town Leisure Centre. He means well, wants to do well, and wants to be a good manager. Unfortunately his best talent is to continually create recipes for total disaster.
Deep down Brittas cares about his staff, but all he ever seems to do is to make their lives more difficult.
Trying to rise above this, and to keep the Leisure Centre running smoothly, is his assistant Laura (Julia St John).
Behind every good man, so the saying goes, is a good woman, and behind any maniac, is a good woman losing her sanity! Helen Brittas (Philippa Haywood) is no different as she struggles to cope with the mania of her husband.
